Central Florida Jewish Film Festival
Winner—Best Culinary Film, Napa Valley Film Festival!
Founded by Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel – the first Muslim Arab to win Israel’s MasterChef – the A-sham Arabic Food Festival depicts social change through food. At the festival, Jewish and Arab Israeli chefs collaborate on exotic and delicious dishes, working together to transform traditional recipes. Celebrating their unique cultural heritages and their common love of cooking, the chefs prove that there is no room for religion and politics in the kitchen. A film about hope, synergy, and mouthwatering fare, BREAKING BREAD won the Best Culinary Film Award at the Napa Valley Film Festival.
