See 12-award-winning films and enjoy the flexibility of watching the films at any time within each film's 48-hour window. These unique stories come from all over the world and feature Jewish filmmakers, directors, actors and stories.

This year's lineup begins Aug. 2 with "Miracle of Miracles," the story of the making of the Broadway musical "Fiddler on the Roof," a classic and an audience favorite at The White Theatre at The J.

The lineup continues with "On The Map" - Aug. 3; "Crescendo" - Aug. 4; "After Munich" - Aug. 5; "Ahead of Time" - Aug. 9; "Extra Innings" - Aug. 10; "Picture of His Life" - Aug. 11; "Leona" - Aug. 12; "The Samuel Project" - Aug. 16; "Standing Up Falling Down" - Aug. 17; "My Polish Honeymoon" - Aug. 18; and finishes with "The Keeper" - Aug. 19.
