VIJFF Brings on the Laughter with a Feel-Good Film Festival

The 7th annual Victoria International Jewish Film Festival (VIJFF) will introduce its 2021 program with a Feel-Good Film Festival running June 6-10, 2021, in VIJFF’s virtual cinema (https://watch.eventive.org/vijff). The Feel-Good Film Festival aims at creating a shared experience with the cathartic effects of comedy.

In addition to presenting two feature-length comedies and a heartwarming documentary, the  program opens with specially-curated stand-up comedy. The opening night live-streamed comedy event is from 7:30-8:30 pm on June 6, 2021, and hosted by NPR’s Ophira Eisenberg, a Canadian Brooklyn-based comedian who will be joined by three other hilarious comedy acts. For your shared experience to go beyond the  screen, we are also offering special snack boxes (nosh boxes) crafted by Spinnakers and a “support local” initiative encouraging purchases from favourite local shops.
Festival participation is by donation. Visit vijff.ca for more information.

The spring Feel-Good Film Festival complements the VIJFF’s more expansive main fall festival, which will present seven films, narratives and documentaries.
The VIJFF is a program of the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria (JCCV).
