The 22nd annual St. Louis Jewish Film Festival takes place June 4-8 at Landmark Plaza Frontenac Cinema. With 16 films from from nine countries, it is truly “A Global Film Feast.” The festival has seven narrative features and nine documentaries. Features include comedies, true-story dramas, mysteries and thrillers. The documentaries cover subjects including history, music, food and sports.
