So I'm back and ready to attack....all my programs for the rest of the semester that is! There are a lot of things in the Hillel Arts Department to look forward to. Next Tuesday will be our second Art for the Jewish Heart for the semester,but more details to come. (facebook search: Art for the Jewish Heart) Today I want to focus on a new and exciting program being brought to the Gainesville community, the First Gainesville Jewish Film Festival.
The festival will be held at the Hippodrome Theatre in downtown Gainesville beginning Monday, March 14th and will be a duration of six nights. Each night of the festival will have a particular Jewish theme, from Jewish Identity to Contemporary Israeli Media. The program will also feature speakers and discussions following the films. Opening night we will be featuring the film "The Yankles," which is an upcoming festival favorite around the world. The event is free to the public and open to the entire Gainesville community. Please mark these dates on your calendar, March 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 28th,and 29th and get pumped for an awesome 6 nights of Jews on the big screen!
