27th Annual Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival

Oshman Family Jewish Community Center

The Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival returns for its 27th year of bringing carefully selected works that celebrate the Jewish spirit and culture to the Bay Area Jewish community. Designed to educate and entertain, the Festival is an opportunity for all ages to connect and explore a myriad of Jewish themes and traditions through thought-provoking short films, features, and documentaries from around the world. The Festival will open with a screening of "Sammy Davis Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me," the first major film documentary to examine Davis' vast talent and journey for identity through the shifting tides of civil rights and racial progress during 20th-century America. The Centerpiece event will feature "Standing Up," which follows three unlikely aspiring comedians as they risk everything to find their voices on the cutthroat New York comedy scene. A screening of the documentary "Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds: The Conductor Zubin Mehta," with special guests, will conclude the festival
