The sixth annual Israeli Film Festival, held Jan. 7-10 at the Weinstein JCC, announced a special guest today. Producer Nancy Spielberg, sister of Hollywood living legend Steven Spielberg, will give a talk-back after the film "Above and Beyond" on opening night, Thursday, Jan. 7.

The festival features four films that "explore the tensions of heritage versus contemporary trends, family, faith and more," according to a release. "A highlight of the Weinstein JCC’s Patron of the Arts series, the Festival is open to the public. Program admission is $12 per film or $42 for all four films with discounts for JCC members. Tickets may be purchased at weinsteinjcc.org or by calling (804) 285-6500."
