NJJFF: Tel Aviv on Fire
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]

In this charming satire, Salam, a slacker PA on a popular Palestinian soap opera, finds unexpected success as a screenwriter when he begins pilfering plot points from Assi, an imaginative Israeli border guard. But when Assi’s ideas start pushing the show in a more pro-Israel direction, Salam finds himself caught in the middle of an artistic battleground — with the whole country tuning in to see how it unfolds.
