SVJFF Patron Preview

The 26th Annual Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival is excited to present a "Sneak Preview" of this year's festival.

Join us for two weeks in San Jose and two weeks in Palo Alto, for screenings of features and documentaries from around the world with special guests.

Opening Night Event is the Northern California Premiere of "Jungle" and special guests Yossi Ghinsberg and Dana Lustig. Jungle is based on true events of Yossi in the Amazon jungle (played by Daniel Radcliffe) and Yossi's bestseller book "Back from Tuichi" sold millions of copies and translated to 15 languages. Discussion and Reception will follow.

The Centerpiece screening is "My Hero Brother" and our special guest director Yonatan Nir. Nir is an award-winning filmmaker has been telling stories for over a decade—from epic photojournalist reports to the critically acclaimed Dolphin Boy which screened in over 130 film festivals.

Closing Night will feature a screening of "Ben-Gurion, Epilogue" which is a documentary that reveals Ben-Gurion prophecy, his dedication to Zionism and a life filled with self-examination. We will be joined by director producer Yariv Mozer and David Ben-Gurion grandson Alon, for a discussion after the screening.

Please consider becoming a donor by August 20th to be recognized in the SVJFF 2017 Festival program guide.

Thank you, the SVJFF audience, for a fantastic 25th Annual year.

Please join us at the festival again for our 26th!
