LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — For the first time ever, viewers outside of Florida can engage with the Naples Jewish Film Festival and its rich lineup of feature films and episodic series.
Harnessing the power of Film Festival Flix’s virtual venue solution, the festival brings their 2022 program to a user-friendly platform for easy and straightforward home viewing, casting a wider net for their selection of stories investigating Jewish identity from a wide variety of perspectives while promoting awareness of Israel’s history and culture.
Established in March of 2014, the Naples Jewish Film Festival was initially conceived of as a fundraiser for the Beth Tikvah synagogue of Naples, Florida. Over the years, the festival has grown in scope, engaging with the Naples community and formalizing itself as an unmissable event celebrating and exploring contemporary Jewish experiences. The Naples Jewish Film Festival affords movie goers the opportunity to see Jewish films that are not easily accessible in theaters or on streaming services. These high quality films with Jewish themes create a sense of community, cultural understanding, and engage viewers in a way that no other medium does.
This year’s lineup consists of four feature length films (Tiger Within, Dirty Tricks, Greener Pastures, and Here We Are) and two long-form series (Labyrinth of Peace and Asylum City). Titles will roll out one at a time during the dates of the festival. The dates and times for each selection can be found on the festival’s calendar page on Film Festival Flix.
Festival sponsors include Beth Tikvah, Mondo Uomo, Kay Lifestyle Homes, and Sotheby’s International Realty. Both festival passes and patron passes are available for purchase now. Donations to help support the festival are encouraged.
