KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The KC Jewish Film Festival brings several films to our area that would not normally be in theaters in Kansas City.

It opens Oct. 11 and runs through Oct. 19, featuring films with a Jewish twist that celebrate Jewish culture and film.

Look for more on the films on The FOX 4 News Morning Show.  FOX 4 film critic Shawn Edwards is the festival’s director.

The film list includes:

  • Jayhawkers, a sports drama/biographical film that follows the life of Wilt Chamberlain, Coach Phog Allen and the 1956 Kansas Jayhawks.
  • The Day I Saw Your Heart, a story about a father and his two daughters, one with whom he has never gotten along. When he tells them he’s expecting a baby with his new wife, they are shocked at the news from their 60-year-old father. He tries to get closer to Justine by meeting all her ex-boyfriends. The result nearly cracks the family apart.
  • Cupcakes, a light-hearted musical about friends surviving in the cut-throat world of the pop business.
  • In Igor and the Cranes’ Journey, 11-year-old Igor has cherished his yearly visits to the Russian countryside to see his dad, Peter, a world-renowned crane specialist. On an expedition with his dad, Igor witnesses the birth of hatchling Karl, and vows to watch over him. But when Igor’s mom, a choral conductor, decides to take a new job and immigrate to Israel, Igor is forced to leave his dad, his friends, and his beloved Karl behind.
