Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival Brings Drama, History to Valley Screens

'Tis the season. Shockingly, we're not talking about football anymore. Instead, we're talking about film. Sundance recently took over Park City, the Oscars are at the end of the month, and Phoenix was just entertained by our own LGBT film festival, Desperado.

But now, it's time for the Valley to add a little kef to the mix with the 19th Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival. And this year's line up is impressive, with an Academy Award-winning director, a viewing with Theodore Bikel, and Glenn Close lighting up the big screen.
