The Annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival 9th Season...

The Jewish experience in Nevada began well over a century ago when some of the first families arrived looking for better lives in the American West. From the Comstock Lode in Virginia City to the great resorts in the desert Jews have played an important and crucial role in the cultural diversity and economic development of the state. Today this community comes together to celebrate one of the great cultural traditions in Southern Nevada, the Annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival.

For nine years Nevada's longest and most popular film festival has brought some of the greatest and most heartfelt films from the Jewish Diaspora. This years festival features 17 films from various genre including history, family, faith, romance and contemporary themes.

The festival began Thursday, January 14 and continues thru January 31st. The film festival is produced by the non-profit Desert Space Foundation and the Jewish Family Service Agency.
