3 Stars Jewish Cinema debuted on July 29, 2001 at the just-opened Angelika Film Center in Dallas. A sold-out audience of 300 people were in attendance for this premier event, featuring "Left Luggage" starring Isabella Rosellini and Maximillian Schell.
Board members Susan Wilkofsky and Bart Weiss welcomed the audience and explained the goal of 3 Stars Jewish Cinema, which is to bring rarely seen Jewish film of the highest quality and greatest diversity to this community. Morton Meyerson, one of the founders of 3 Stars Jewish Cinema, offered some personal comments on how the Jewish film festival in San Francisco had moved and inspired him in recent years. He wanted his own community to experience Jewish film of that quality on a year-round basis.
Since 2001, 3 Stars Jewish Cinema has brought a diverse array of thought provoking, inspiring, and entertaining Jewish-themed films from around the world to the North Texas region. The mission of 3 Stars Jewish Cinema is to create a public forum for monthly screenings of classic and contemporary Jewish-themed films, and to facilitate post-film dialog and discussions. Following every film, a 3 Stars' moderator and/or guest speakers conduct "open mike" exchanges with audience members.
Through these films, 3 Stars Jewish Cinema hopes to offer a deeper and more comprehensive insight into the diverse and often complicated lives of Jews and Jewish communities around the globe and throughout time.
3 Stars Jewish Cinema is a non-profit 501(c) (3)monthly Jewish film series.
