Film buffs in Tulsa, Oklahoma will soon be able to view a mix of foreign films, documentaries, comedies and dramas combined in a special collection for Tulsa's first-ever Jewish film festival.

The Oklahoma Jewish Film Festival runs Sunday until Thursday at Circle Cinema, Tulsa's non-profit and independent movie theater, next week and is offered through a partnership between Circle Cinema, Jewish Federation of Tulsa and Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art.

The event will present two films each night.

“Our goal for the first ever Oklahoma Jewish Film Festival was to select quality films ranging from comedies to dramas to documentaries that would entertain and engage a broad audience,” said Drew Diamond, executive director.

Themed receptions will be offered during the festival — including a special exhibition on the origins of comedy to coincide with the screening of "When Comedy Went to School," a U.S. documentary on the birth of modern stand-up.
