Victoria International Jewish Film Festival Opens this Saturday

Opening this Saturday, November 18th at the Roxy Theatre, 2657 Quadra St.

We welcome you to our 3rd year of extraordinary new and independent films from around the world on Jewish themes. Come join us and be a part of a wonderful cultural experience.

The Victoria International Jewish Film Festival (VIJFF) begins with our opening night screening of Harmonia at 7:00 pm on Saturday, November 18th.

The beautiful harpist Sarah is married to Abraham, the charismatic conductor of the Jerusalem Philharmonic Orchestra. With no children, their melancholy life revolves around their music. Enter Hagar, a young horn player who joins the orchestra and forms a close personal relationship with Sarah. Their bond gives way to something more fraught, when Hagar offers to carry the couple’s baby. A modern retelling of the story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar from Genesis, Harmonia offers surprising new ways to interpret the ancient story.

Director Ori Sivan, 2016, 98 mins.
Nominated for five Israeli Academy Awards. Winner of the Best Cinematography Award and the Lia Van Leer Jewish Heritage awards, both at the Jerusalem Film Festival.

Following the screening of Harmonia, join us at the Dance Victoria Studios, 2750 Quadra St., for the not to be missed opening night celebration. There will be light contemporary Israeli food catered by Yalla, a colour changing cocktail expertly mixed by Victoria Distillers, live jazz, sweet treats and more.

The VIJFF is 4 days of incredible international cinema with films you won’t be able to see anywhere else! The VIJFF runs until Tuesday, November 21st. For information on the films, special events, schedule, purchasing tickets, and more, visit our website at vijff.ca.
