iW NEWS | LA Jewish Fest To Open With "Little Traitor"

The 3rd annual Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival (LAJFF) will commence May 8th by celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel with the Los Angeles premiere of Lynn Roth‘s “The Little Traitor.” The festival will also honor Theodore Bikel with a special award, and Joan Rivers with the Marlene Adler Marks Woman of Inspiration Award. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our third annual festival than by honoring Israel’s 60th anniversary with Lynn Roth’s inspiring and poignant film and Theodore Birkel’s work within the Jewish community,” said Executive Director Hilary Helstein in a statement. The festival runs May 8-15, 2008 with over thirty features, documentaries, short subjects and cultural events at various locations around Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. [Peter Knegt]
