MJFF Weekend Edition celebrates Pride Month 

Streaming June 11 at 9AM – June 13 at Midnight 



Over a period of several years, four Israeli teens and their families navigate the challenges of gender transformation. “Nobody chooses to be transgender. None of those kids woke up one morning and decided to be trans. It’s something stronger than themselves,” – Times of Israel  


Program: The film’s director Hilla Medalia joins MJFF for a live discussion on Sunday, June 13 at 1 PM 



One thing that is not in question in this ‘slyly subversive’ romcom – Shira (Israeli) and Maria (German) love each other and want to be together. But when their families and tensions of life in modern day Israel get into the mix, things get complicated. 


‘This film recognizes the fact that in all societies differences can divide us, but what of love?’ Lesflics  


Films will be available on the Eventive Platform. Both films are free, but you must reserve your ticket for access. (Links for the films will not be emailed).
