- The Washington Times - Sunday, December 3, 2006

From a collection of shorts on the July 18, 1994, terrorist bombings in Argentina to a Swiss feature poking fun at how hard it is to find a good Jewish man to marry, the offerings at this year’s Washington Jewish Film Festival are diverse, indeed. The festival — which began Thursday and runs through Sunday — includes shorts, features and documentaries from the U.S., Europe and Israel, as well as areas not traditionally considered hubs of Jewish life. Today, audiences can catch six screenings: “Nina’s Home” (1 p.m.), “The Journey of Vaan Nguyen” and “Kylie Goldstein: All American” (both at 6:30 p.m.), and “Wil” and “The Metamorphosis” (both at 8:30 p.m.). The 7 p.m. screening of “Matchmaker: In Search of a Kosher Man,” at the Embassy of Switzerland, is sold out. For venue information, ticket prices and the full schedule, call the festival hotline at 202/777-3248 or visit online at www.wjff.org.
