2017 New York Jewish Film Festival Announces Lineup

The 2017 New York Jewish Film Festival, which will take place January 11-24, has announced the primary lineup of films it will feature. Of the 29 films selected for the festival’s 26th incarnation, 26 will be receiving their world, United States, or New York premieres.

The films will include Dorit Hakim’s “Moon in the 12th House,” which will be screened at the festival’s opening night, Bernard Henri-Lévy’s documentary “Peshmerga,” which will receive a centerpiece screening, and Maria Schrader’s “Stefan Zweig, Farewell to Europe,” which will close the festival.

The festival, which is a joint effort of the Jewish Museum and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, will feature a mix of narrative features, documentaries, and shorts. Read the Forward’s coverage of the 2016 festival here, and find information on the full slate of films for 2017 here.
