ST. LOUIS - Jan. 12, 2022 - PRLog -- The 27th annual St. Louis Jewish Film Festival will be held virtually this spring, March 6 – 13, presenting a selection of documentary and feature films from around the world. While all films depict a piece of the Jewish experience, the themes are universal and are meant to appeal to all, regardless of faith. In addition to 13 compelling films, the Festival offers discussions with filmmakers and others associated with the films.

Highlights include:

Greener Pastures – Dov, a widower, lives in a nursing home where he feels like he's in jail. He dreams of buying back his old house, but he has no money since losing his pension, for which he blames the State. When he realizes that everyone in the nursing home has access to state-sponsored medical cannabis, he finds the solution.

High Maintenance - Dani Karavan has created nearly 100 environmental installations around the world and won some of the most prestigious international art awards. This is not your ordinary documentary!

Tiger Within - The incomparable Ed Asner stars in this tender saga that recounts the story of Samuel, a Holocaust survivor, and Casey, a punk teen runaway. Despite their respective traumas and initial mistrust of one another, they manage to provide a sense of family and mutual support for each other.

Not Going Quietly is a passionate documentary that brings light the fight against ALS.

Lighter films that entertain include Tango Shalom and The Conductor.

An all-Access Pass is $98 (plus fees) and individual films are $15 each (plus fees). Tickets will go on sale January 17 and films will be available for purchase and viewing at, the J's virtual platform. A complete list of films and discussions, including trailers, can be found at
