CALL FOR SHORT FILMS
FILM SUBMISSIONS SHOULD SHOULD BE 15 MINUTES OR LESS
This November, Roxie Roz is partnering with Philadelphia Jewish Film and Media to curate the exciting program: BESHERT/DESTINY: AN INEVITABLE EVENING OF BURLESQUE, STORYTELLING, AND SHORT FILMS. Live Streamed on CineSend @ 7 PM on November 14, 2021
The Jewish concept of beshert usually refers to the idea that each of us has a “soulmate” or an “other half” we were destined for. In fact, the literal translation of beshert from Yiddish means “destiny.” Do you believe in destiny? Are you convinced that we are preordained to meet the people that we meet, love the people that we love, and live the life that we are living? If so, how does the concept of beshert reconcile with our notion of free will? Or, for the religious among us, how does free will cohabitate with divine providence – the idea that God watches over us, guides us, and even interferes with our affairs?
