Teaneck’s film festival begins this week

The Teaneck International Film Festival will run from November 14 to 17. The festival, with its movies and talkbacks, draws more than 3,000 filmgoers each year. This year it’s called “Activism: Making Change,” and the films address racism, oppression, the environment, the LGBTQ community, women’s concerns, and immigration.

The Jewish Standard is among this year’s sponsors; it’s backing “Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles,” the story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, “Fiddler on The Roof,” and its creative roots in early 1960s New York. After the film a talkback will feature the film’s director, Max Lewkowicz.
