PJFF is also proud to announce two special events in the weeks leading up to CineMondays. On Thursday, February 15, we will host a very special, advanced screening of FOXTROT at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Samuel Maoz’s critically acclaimed drama appeared on numerous publications’ top ten lists of 2017, won the National Board of Review for Best Foreign Language Film, and is currently in the running for a Best Foreign Language Film nomination at the Academy Awards. Tickets for this extraordinary film will go on sale soon.

On Saturday, March 24, PJFF will also host an informative presentation and book signing at The Gershman Y commemorating the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s monumental sci-fi classic, 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. This mind-bending evening will feature multi-media presentations, a panel discussion, and film clips. Tickets will go on sale soon.
