When the 16th Annual Mandell JCC Hartford Jewish Film Festival tap dances into five theaters March 17 – 27, 2012, audiences will be treated to a globe-spanning love story, war heroes and saviors, taboo-breaking documentaries, tango, klezmer and dancing superstars, and a child’s eye view of the world on film, as well as visiting directors, actors and authors, parties, concerts and special events. The state’s longest-running and largest celebration of Jewish culture and peoplehood returns to screen 22 award-winning features, documentaries, shorts and romances from ten countries over ten days.

Hartford’s annual ten day culture-crossing cinematic feast is Jewish story-telling with an international accent, featuring titles from Argentina, China, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Poland, United Kingdom and the United States, where they have won multiple awards and honors.

A gala reception on Opening Night (March 17) heralds the premiere of the miraculous love story, Remembrance, and a closing night (March 27) tango concert and dance party with The Hartt School, University of Hartford, follows Tango – A Story with Jews. Special events during the festival include an encore screening of Joyce Mandell’s and Michael King’s The Rescuers; a Muslim-Jewish Teen Screen event with young cast members and the director of David – The Movie; a Jewish soul music performance and kosher nosh with The Klezmatics – On Holy Ground; a Shalom Sesame Family Flicks program for tots and a Senior Screen matinee film, entertainment and lunch.
