The 26th annual Portland Jewish Film Festival—a longtime collaboration between the Northwest Film Center and Institute of Judaic Studies—returns for yet another year of international flicks spanning multiple genres. Particularly intriguing films at this year’s festival include Maktub, a comedy about two survivors of a suicide bombing working to fulfill wishes placed by strangers at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, and a historical drama, An Act of Defiance, about the efforts of Nelson Mandela and other black and Jewish activists to resist South African apartheid.

Various times June 10–24; see website for details.
