Hallelujah! The Boulder Jewish Film Festival Is Back In Person!

Thursday night, driving snow couldn’t keep a sold-out theater’s worth of community members from showing up at The Dairy Center for the Arts for the opening film of the 10th Boulder Jewish Film Festival. The evening started with a Gala Reception, where the crowd enjoyed a light repast catered by Blackbelly, music from Sheldon Sands, and everyone seemed very happy to be back in person and shmoozing.

The opening film was “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song (2021), a stirring, soulful tribute to Cohen’s lifelong quest for truth and beauty, in which we view the venerated singer-songwriter’s life and legacy through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn. 

Following the film, Founding Film Festival Director Kathryn Bernheimer led a talkback with Rabbi Marc Soloway.

The Festival runs through November 13th at the Dairy Arts Center. Information about the rest of the films can be found here, and you can buy tickets here. (If the film you want is sold out, check back as additional screenings of the most popular films are being scheduled.)
