Tucson International Jewish Film Festival celebrate 30 years

The Tucson International Jewish Film Festival will run this year from Jan. 3-27. The TIJFF is one of the longest-running Jewish film festivals in the country and one of the longest-running film festivals in Arizona.

Being 2020, all the films this year will be virtual but there is a silver lining – there will be pre-festival films and a post-festival film line-up quarterly in February, April, August and November of 2021. Post-Festival films are available as part of a 12-pack pass now (which includes all 8 of the main season films); they can also be purchased individually.

The festival will be using Eventive (https://watch.eventive.org/tucsonfilm), a technology platform created by independent film lovers and designed specifically to enhance all aspects of film screening from ticking to virtual cinema. Through this site, you will find information on how to purchase tickets and how to set up viewing on your televisions or devices. You will also find the dates and times available to watch each film and how to join in post film programming.

In January, TIJFF will stream eight films and two shorts using Eventive and post-film interviews and discussions will be held on Zoom. When you purchase a ticket, you will be sent the Zoom link to watch the post-film experience.

The last pre-festival film, “Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators,” will be available Tuesday, Dec. 8. The documentary tells the story of Hans and Margaret Rey, a German-Jewish couple who narrowly escaped Nazi-occupied France on makeshift bicycles, secretly carry the unpublished Curious George manuscript with them. Forced to live in Brazil while they await visas to the United States, the couple eventually sail into New York harbor to start life anew and create a children’s book classic.
