Midday Movies: Food, Flicks & Friends

Explore films of Jewish interest, enjoy a meal, and get to know fellow cinephiles with this new film appreciation series.


Join us in the beautifully renovated Gordon Center Lobby to explore films of Jewish interest, enjoy a meal, and get to know fellow cinephiles.

This series of five film events will include enlightening discussions with filmmakers and scholars and casual conversation with other film enthusiasts. Each program will bring a unique approach to the film appreciation experience; no two sessions will be the same!

We are Baltimore Jewish Film Festival fans, and we loved the Midday Movies which offers a mix of film genres, while also providing an opportunity to discuss them with a group of people. We also enjoyed learning from a knowledgeable and engaging speaker.
