Now Playing at the Ritz Bourse!

THE CAKEMAKER is now playing in Philadelphia! Currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, Ofir Raul Graizer’s stunning emotional drama of love and forgiveness is now playing at the Ritz at the Bourse. Don’t miss the film that the Philadelphia Gay News calls “a gentle, absorbing drama…an affecting story about love, loss and pastry.”


*FUN FACT: this official CAKEMAKER poster was also designed by GPJFF’s very own Graphic Design Intern from last summer, Ms. Sarah Grohol (Moore College of Art & Design ’18).
