One of the largest and most respected Jewish film festivals in North America, the Washington Jewish Film Festival (WJFF) is an international exhibition of cinema that celebrates the diversity of Jewish history, culture and experience through the moving image.
The Washington Jewish Film Festival is proud to bring you an encore presentation of the sold-out closing night film, Fanny’s Journey.
Based on a true story, Fanny’s Journey is an incredible tale of bravery, strength, and survival, centered on a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and fears no one. In 1943, 13-year-old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to a foster home for Jewish children in Italy. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. Suddenly left on their own, these eleven children will do the impossible to reach the Swiss border in order to survive.
