The 9th HJFF takes place March 6–17, 2013, with screenings at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston, the MFAH, and Holocaust Museum Houston. It’s a lively, diverse showcase of documentaries, features, and shorts that consider contemporary and historical Jewish themes. Programming is guided by a selection committee chaired by Barbara Bronstein, cochaired by Diane Lee, and honorary chairs Doreen Joffe and Sharon Kagan. The centerpiece screening at the museum is the Houston premiere of Seymour Schwartz: Home Movie. Filmmaker Jon Schwartz (This Is Our Home, It Is Not for Sale) profiles his father and extended Jewish family in Houston, spanning the twentieth century.
Special thanks to Marilyn Hassid and Amy Rahmani, Jewish Community Center; and Tamara Savage, Holocaust Museum Houston; and Barbara Bronstein (HJFF selection committee chair).
