What is this? The latest men's exercise craze? No, not quite. This picture is a still from the film "A Matter of Size," one of many interesting and eclectic, critically acclaimed films playing April 22-May 2 at the JCCGW Second Annual Film Festival. This film tells of the story of Herz, an overweight Israeli cook living with his mother, who soon finds himself unemployed and thrown out of his weight-loss classes for his ever-increasing weight gain, but soon finds a perfect fit for his zaftig build. This film concludes the festival, and ends with a sushi and Sapporo reception. The festival opens with a film about a Catholic-turned-Jewish comedian Thursday.

Don't miss an opportunity to see these unique and award-winning films from Israel, France, Tunisia, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and the U.S. covering any number of themes. Below is a pic from "For My Father," a love story about isolated individuals, Keren, who broke from her Orthodox parents, and Terek, a Palestinian terrorist, who were brought up to be enemies.

The Festival will take place at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington in Rockville. For more information, contact 301-348-3805 or visit
