Baton Rouge Jewish Film Festival goes virtual all week

The 15th annual Baton Rouge Jewish Film Festival started up on Sunday, Jan. 10. But unlike previous festivals at the Manship Theatre, this year it’s going entirely virtual. Individual tickets or a festival pass get you access to stream the selected movies on demand.

The slate of films include Mossad, Breaking Bread, Travelogue Tel Aviv, Oliver Sacks: His Own Life and several others. There will also be three live-streamed free Q&A Zoom sessions with many of the festival’s filmmakers.

The festival will continue until Sunday, Jan. 17. Click here for more information.
