Despite Many Sold-Out Screenings, There Are Plenty of Seats Left for the BJFF

Effective immediately, the remaining screenings of the Boulder Jewish Film Festival have been canceled. Click here for more information.


The Boulder Jewish Film Festival opened Wednesday and continues through March 15 at the Dairy Arts Center. Although many screenings are sold out, there are seats available for most of the films. Also, last minute tickets may be available for a sold out screening, so check back at the box office the day of. New this year, we are presenting three additional screenings on Saturday, March 14 and tickets are available for these popular titles: “Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles,” “Fig Tree,” and “Born in Jerusalem.”

I highly recommend “Aulcie,” with Dani Menkin in person, on Wednesday, March 11  at 3 pm in the Gordon Gamm Theater. A fascinating sports story as well as a story of personal and national identity, the follow-up to “On the Map” focuses on African American basketball star Aulcie Perry, a hero in Israel. Here’s a handy list of films with plenty of tickets (green), limited tickets (yellow), and just a few left (red).
