Opening Night at San Francisco Jewish Film Festival: Hava Nagila (The Movie) & Bash

Location Details
Castro Theater
429 Castro Street
San Francisco, CA
Event Type Concert/Show
What is heard at bar mitzvahs and Jewish weddings, late at night in the bars of Reykjavik, outside the National Museum in Tehran and on the streets of Managua? “Hava Nagila”! Now the song has its own movie—a foot-tapping celebration of 100 years of Jewish culture and spirituality. Together with a brilliant cast of characters that includes Connie Francis, Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy and even Glenn Campbell, we travel with “Hava” around the world. Hava Nagila (The Movie) peels back the rich history, mystery and meaning of the song which is “kitschy, but oh so profound.”

After the film, join us at our Opening Night Bash for a fantastic array of savory and sweet treats and hosted bars by some of the Bay Area’s best purveyors of food and drink. Schmooze with filmmakers and special guests and dance to San Francisco's own La Pêche Quintet. Don’t forget to bring your sweet tooth downstairs to The Backroom with drinks, desserts, photo booth by Snap Fiesta, espresso cart by Espresso Subito and did we say desserts? It’s all happening at the Swedish American Hall, located upstairs from the Café du Nord.
