Event Details

The 17th Annual Central Florida Jewish Film Festival, taking place November 14th – 16th, is a cinematic celebration of Jewish life, culture, and history. Using the power of film to inform, educate, and most of all entertain, the festival challenges conventional perspectives on issues facing all of us. This program is part of Enzian’s cultural festival circuit and is co-presented with the Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando and sponsored by Orlando Weekly.

A special menu will also be offered throughout the festival, including: Spinach & Cheese Knishes, Latkes, Holishkes, Hebrew National Hot Dogs, and Beef, Carrot, & Sweet Potato Tzimmes.

Sunday, November 15th at 1:30PM
This film will be playing at Enzian Theater
Gifted Eyad, a Palestinian Israeli boy, is given the chance to go to a prestigious Jewish boarding school in Jerusalem. As he desperately tries to fit in with his Jewish schoolmates and within early 1990s Israeli society, Eyad develops a friendship with another outsider, Jonathan (Michael Moshonov, Mabul) a boy suffering from muscular dystrophy, and gradually becomes part of the home Jonathan shares with his mother, Edna (Yael Abecassis, Kadosh). After falling in love with Naomi, a Jewish girl, he leaves school when their relationship is uncovered, and he discovers that he will have to sacrifice his identity in order to be accepted. Faced with a choice, Eyad will have to make a decision that will change his life forever. Nominated for 4 Israeli Oscars, this latest work from acclaimed Israeli director Eran Riklis (Zaytoun) is an unusually delicate and sometimes humorous coming-of-age drama.
