26th annual William and Irene Weinberg Family Baltimore Jewish Film Festival

This year, the Baltimore Jewish Film Festival will feature three theme nights – one focusing on the Holocaust, another on Israeli/Palestinian relations, and a third on modern Israeli culture – in which three shorts will be shown before the full length feature. All screening events are followed by eminent guest speakers.

The Festival will kick-off with the Baltimore premiere of “The Jewish Cardinal,” a French film with English subtitles. The film tells the amazing true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood.
