The Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival:  Always a favorite, this is expertly curated festival features wonderful films and runs from April 26th to May 3, 2017.  Founded in 2006, the festival’s Executive Director is Hilary Helstein, herself an accomplished film director.  It’s sponsored by the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, among others.  I’ll be there, and will post coverage as I do.  For more info. and tickets, visit lajfilmfest.org.
