"[Our] mission is to promote awareness and appreciation of the diversity of the Jewish people, provide a dynamic and inclusive forum for exploration of and dialogue about the Jewish experience, and encourage independent filmmakers working with Jewish themes."
Ten films will be screened at the Rafael between Saturday and Monday.
Opening day will feature Incessant Visions, a documentary about modernist architect Erich Mendelsohn, whose grandaughter is a Marin County resident.
