JCC Greenwich Davis Film Festival begins Sept. 9

The JCC Greenwich Davis Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m. with “Zero Motivation” at Bow-Tie Criterion Cinemas at Greenwich Plaza. A hilarious new film about Israel’s female soldiers, “Zero Motivation” has broken box-office records in Israel and nabbed awards-among them TriBeCa Film Festival’s coveted award for Best Narrative Feature and Nora Ephron Prize in 2014.

Monthly screenings will take place on Wednesdays throughout the year with specially curated films of Jewish interest, including international features, documentaries and even a hit TV show. Festival sponsors Ellen and Gary Davis noted, “The Davis Film Festival builds on the success of JCC Greenwich’s film programming to date and fulfills our dream of enhancing and formalizing it. These films provide an important alternative to the typical multiplex fare, and although they reflect the Jewish experience, they are human stories with universal resonance. We’re thrilled to continue bringing our community the best in Jewish themes, narratives and talent from around the globe. The Davis Film Festival will make JCC’s salute to cinematic creativity even more accessible to Greenwich film-goers.”
