Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival

The 16th annual Las Vegas Jewish Film Festival will run Jan. 14-29. The festival includes “And When I Die, I Won’t Stay Dead,” a new documentary film by Billy Woodberry about black, Jewish Beat poet Bob Kaufman; “On the Map,” the true story of the 1977 Israeli Maccabi Basketball team that made history by beating the Soviet Red Army team and winning their first European title; and more.

All films will be accompanied by the filmmakers, or related experts in the subject matter, who will provide introductions and moderate post-screening discussions with the audience.

Individual tickets are $10; LVJFF passes are $50. All students and education professionals are invited to attend for free. More information and tickets are available online at lvjff.org.
