20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
For the safety and health of our community, it has become necessary to postpone our 20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival set to begin on Thursday, March 19. We will reschedule the films when we know we can do so safely. We expect that the modified festival will include screenings throughout the summer, September and October. All purchased tickets will be exchangeable once the new dates are confirmed.
Please contact Sarah Diamond with any questions: (973) 929-2938 or [email protected]

2019, 90 minutes Israel / Hebrew, French, English
Growing up in Paris’s Muslim quarter, Rasoul Abu-Marzuk and Tarik Jihad were best friends. But when Tarik comes out of the closet at 15, Rasoul turns his back on his friend, and Tarik is ostracized from the community. Now “TJ” is a proudly gay singer on his way to represent France in Europe’s biggest song contest. But he becomes a target as ISIS plants an operative — Rasoul — acting as his boyfriend, into the French delegation to violently attack the festival.
