Menemsha Films offers discounted viewing

I just saw this Facebook posting by the Spokane Jewish Cultural Film Festival. It comes from Ben Saari, the marketing director of Menemsha Films:

From Menemsha Films:

"Dear Friends,

"We hope that all of you are staying healthy and safe during these uncertain times. A number of festivals reached out to us, asking how we can work together to bring our films to their festival audiences to enjoy at home while public events are being postponed or cancelled. Of course, we want to help however we can.

"For starters, we have discounted ALL of our titles available digitally on iTunes and Amazon Prime Video (for rental or purchase) for a limited time, to allow audiences to enjoy these quality Jewish films from the comfort of their homes.

Saari attached a graphic that highlighted the 34 Menemsha films now on sale at both sites. "Each of these titles are available now for a .99 cent rental or $4.99 purchase," Saari continued. "More information about each of these titles can be found on our website."

I would add that some of the best films that I see every year play at both the SJCFF and the Spokane International Film Festival, one being the movie previewed below. So this is great news, and not just because the theaters are (temporarily?) closed.
