[VIRTUAL] Saturday Night at the Movies! with Judith Dack

Date: January 30, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join local cinephile, Judith Dack, along with Joy Eisenhauer, ACE Director, for a talkback on last year's Boulder Jewish Film Festival's 2020 Shorts Program and a glimpse of what we can look forward to for the 2021 Shorts Programs which will open the greater BJFF March 10 - 21. 

Movie audiences always love the shorts and this BJFF program sold out immediately. This special medium, often produced at the beginning of a filmmaker’s career, has limited opportunities to be viewed on the big screen, or even the small screen.  A program of short films takes the viewer on a journey. The order of the films must be carefully curated with considerable attention to the cumulative effect upon the audience. Provocative, heart-wrenching, interesting, thoughtful, hilarious, and historical, there is something to engage and touch everyone. We’ve included films from around the world. Hopefully, you will be appreciably moved in some way by each and every film in this grouping. But the beauty of a short film program is that if one film isn’t working for you, another will be along in just a few minutes!
 
Judith will share insights into the committee selection process, highlights of her favorite selections, and discuss why short films have always been one of her favorite programs to attend at film festivals across the country. There will be plenty of time for questions, answers, and discussion. This is a joint offering sponsored by the Boulder JCC and Congregation Nevei Kodesh. 
 
Upon registration, you will receive access to 8 short films as listed below. You will then have until January 30th at 7:00 pm to view the entire robust program (approximately 100 minutes) at your own leisure. On Saturday night all participants will convene with Judith and Joy for a live discussion on Zoom. Invite your friends. All are welcome! 

Saturday, January 30 | 7 - 8 pm MST | $10 per household
