The fourth annual Oklahoma Jewish Film Festival is a four-day showcase running Sunday-Wednesday at Circle Cinema.
Tickets for the 11-film event, which includes special introductions and Q-and-A discussions, are $10 per showing except for a couple of screenings. Information is available at circlecinema.com.
The festival’s goal has always been to “select quality films ranging from comedies to dramas to documentaries that would entertain and engage a broad audience.”
The film festival was conceived as a partnership among Circle Cinema, the Jewish Federation of Tulsa and the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art.
