MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival is now underway. Micki Seinfeld and Chad Tessmer from the Jewish Community Center join FOX6 WakeUp with a preview.

About Jewish Film Festival (website)

For thousands of years, Jewish communities have shared wisdom, values, and experiences. In written word, visual arts, and today in film and television – storytelling has been among the most meaningful characteristics of our community and strength.

The Milwaukee Jewish Film Festival celebrates the quality, diversity, and innovation of Jewish film making from around the world. Narrative or documentary, new or old, the Film Festival finds the highest quality films that speak to the Jewish experience, tell uniquely Jewish stories, or come from the finest Jewish filmmakers across the globe.

Over five days at the Marcus North Shore Cinema, join us for this entertaining, engaging, and informative experience – the likes of which can’t be found anywhere else.
