Join Us for Our Pre-Film Friendraiser!

Join GPJFF for food & conversation at FRIEDA for generations (320 Walnut Street), a unique community venue where people of all ages and backgrounds can eat, drink, share, learn, and create. We will be dining family-style which means everyone will have the opportunity to share and sample an assortment of delicious dishes and sides. We’ll cap off the night with a toast, a cup of coffee or tea, and rugulah for dessert.

This event will take place before THE TOBACCONIST on Monday, April 29 beginning at 5 PM.
