What is the West Valley Jewish Film Society?

 

Welcome to the West Valley Jewish Film Society, part of A Place For Films!

 

We watch great movies from around the world to learn more about Jews and Judaism, history, culture, values, meaning, and just to laugh.

 

Our goal is whether you've seen these films before or are watching them for the first time, you'll enjoy a richer experience when you exchange impressions and ideas they generate, and occasionally, learn more about them from the filmmakers and other guest speakers.


 

May Selection: "The Band's Visit"

Directed by Eran Kolirin

 

Film Discussion will be THURSDAY, July 18th, 7:00 PM on Zoom.

(RSVP Here)

 

Streaming information:

 

The eight Egyptian musicians who comprise the Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrive by mistake in a small town in Israel's Negev Desert. Their booking set for a different city, and with no transportation out of the town or any hotels to stay at, the band settles at a restaurant owned by Dina (Ronit Elkabetz), who offers them lodging. Overcoming ethnic barriers, the Egyptians find diversion and companionship with the Israelis through a pervading undercurrent of shared melancholy.
