RovingEye

The Jewish Experience Series

FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) is proud to present its Fall edition of the annual Roving Eye International Film Festival™. The popular and acclaimed festival celebrating global cinema and artists, announces its 2014 sidebar program on the Jewish Experience through short films, documentary, media and a guest speaker. The event takes place November 11, 12 & 16th. This year’s series explores representations of the Jewish experience in Israel and of the Holocaust through four recent films.

 

"Through film and scholarship, the series tells the stories of the Jewish experience globally—stories of joy and sorrow, faith, diasporas, rich culture, fear and hope—stories that must be told again and again," said the Rev. Nancy Hamlin Soukup, RWU University Multifaith Chaplain co-organizer of the event with Flickers.

 

All programming is free of charge and open to the public and screened on the campus of Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI.
