Cleveland Jewish FilmFest - Fanny's JourneyDate: September 17, 2017Time: 4:30 pm
Fanny's Journey is on Stand-By. When a film is on Stand-By we are no longer selling tickets in advance. This does not mean that we are sold out and usually, everyone on Stand-By is able to see the film.
One-hour before show time, we start selling Stand-By tickets at the theater on a first-come, first-served basis. Ten minutes before the film begins, standby patrons are admitted, as space permits until the theater is full. We are usually able to accommodate everyone on Stand-By. If we sell out and are not able to seat everyone, please accept our apologies. Anyone who is unable to be seated will be immediately refunded their ticket price.

As war is raging in Europe and Fanny’s father is arrested, she and her sister are sent to a boarding school in the countryside while the Germans advance. Just 13 years old, Fanny suddenly finds herself in charge of a group of young children as she sets off on a dangerous journey across
Nazi-ridden France to reach the Swiss border and freedom.
