Hit Films. Big Crowds. Hot Topics.
Thank YOU for creating a box office and attendance record for our 18th Annual Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival!
More than 5,400 men and women, teens and toddlers, grandparents and college students were inspired, entertained, awed and uplifted through the magic of movies in our 30 screening events throughout Connecticut. From the powerful to the provocative; from the cute and charming to the heartwarming and sweet; you supported this festival by your attendance, comments and voting for your festival favorite.
And the audience winners are:
Paris-Manhattan and The Jewish Cardinal
50 Children - The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus, presented at TRIBUTE - OBSERVATIONS ON SURVIVAL AND SPIRIT: LESSONS FROM THE HOLOCAUST
Congratulations to the winners and kudos to all of our talented filmmakers, speakers, guests, partners and a huge THANK YOU to our sponsors, community partners, festival committee and volunteers and Mandell JCC staff!
See you next year at our special Mandell JCC Centennial Celebration edition of the Hartford Jewish Film Festival March 12-22, 2015!
