The 20th JFilm Festival will run in April.

JFilm: The Pittsburgh Jewish Film Forum has announced the 20th JFilm Festival, which will run from April 11 to 21, 2013, will be held at the Manor Theater and other venues in and around the city.

The festival will present narrative and documentary films from around the world, sometimes with their directors speaking afterward. Selections are chosen by a committee of volunteers who rate the films based on their quality and content. Most of the screenings will be Pittsburgh premiers.

“Film Schmooze” following selected films enables audience members to discuss what they’ve just seen in an intimate setting. Titles and additional information will be announced in March.

JFilm also offers year-round programming in addition to the annual festival. For more information visit
