The 30th Annual Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival will live up to its global billing with a collection of films that will resonate with film goers of all ages and backgrounds. The festival is hosted by the Mandel Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches and will be held from January 26 to February 16, 2020 in theaters in Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter and Boynton Beach. This year’s films span diverse themes from sports, politics and history to music, romance and religion. Evoking the past, present and future of Jewish life in the United States, Israel and far-flung corners of the world, the 32 festival selections offer compelling dramas, light comedies and edge-of-your-seat thrillers. The festival’s opening day film will be the Palm Beach County premiere of Aulcie, an inspiring film about Aulcie Perry, a remarkable American-born black athlete and basketball legend who was spotted by a scout for Maccabi Tel Aviv. Both the director and the star of the film will attend the premier.
