The Jewish Film Festival of Dallas provides a window to the Jewish experience and allows us to explore contemporary and historical themes in many different global settings. Some films will make you laugh and others will make you cry…all will provide you with a life lesson. In our 23rd season, we are delighted to present ten compelling films during the month of September. After many of the films we will have a Talk Back with an expert on the subject matter at hand. The intent is to enhance the viewing and learning experience for our audience.

All films shown at Studio Movie Grill Spring Valley
