MJFF WEEKEND EDITION – Free Films Streaming & Program 

Presented by the Maine Jewish Film Festival
Sponsored by David’s Restaurant and Rose Foods 


Shiva Baby
Streaming March 19-21 

A young Jewish woman anxiously juggles an accumulation of mishaps and potentially disastrous encounters, each threatening to expose her messy multitude of secrets, all at the same family gathering. A sharp-witted satire. (Sexual content.) 



Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles 
Streaming March 19-23 

Via London, Versailles, and Instagram, follow celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi on his quest to bring the sumptuous art and decadence of Versailles to life in cake form, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC with the assistance of five renowned pastry chefs. 


Tues. March 23 at 7 PM – Ottolenghi director Laura Gabbert joins MJFF for a live discussion about making the film. 


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). For complete info, visit https://2021mjffweekend.eventive.org/welcome
