Daily Illini: Jewish Film Festival Merges Arts with Culture
The JCC Chicago annual Jewish Film Festival is expected to be their most unique film festival to date. Running for the ninth consecutive year, the Jewish Film Festival is a celebration of film and Jewish culture. The festival originated from a small town in Chicago and was created by a few members of the community who exhibited a passion for film and Judaism. Ilene Uhlmann and Hillary Wenk, the festival’s curators, said the festival has been a success in the past.
