If, in a guessing game, you were to wager that Phoenix's longest running film festival was the, ahem, Phoenix Film Festival, you'd be dead wrong. The Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival would be the correct answer – and it's got the ID to prove it.
In its 18th year, the festival focuses on Jewish indie cinema with 12 films and two shorts spanning three Valley theaters in Peoria, Chandler, and Scottsdale.
Thursday, February 20's screening is The Jewish Cardinal. The short film Woody Before Allen closes out the festival with Paris-Manhattan, a rom-com centered on a Woody Allen-obsessed pharmacist, on Sunday, Feburary 23, at Harkins Arrowhead 18, 16046 North Arrowhead Fountains Drive in Peoria. So best prepare yourself in advance for that debate.
Tickets to single screenings are $11. Call 602-753-9366 or visit www.gpjff.org for more information and a complete schedule.
