TOVAH FELDSHUH recreates her award-winning performance as Golda Meir (and, stunningly, 44 other characters) in GOLDA’S BALCONY, THE FILM (2019), as this final masterpiece by the author of “The Miracle Worker,” WILLIAM GIBSON, makes its motion picture debut in 2019, having been RE-BORN as a new but absolutely riveting motion picture. Following its World Premiere at the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival on Feb. 28, 2019—where it won the Audience Award for “BEST FEATURE”—the film went on—in literally the next 2 months—to win the Audience Award for “BEST FEATURE” at every single competitive Film Festival thereafter at which it was screened (as of April 17, ’19) : a notable “5 for 5” in BEST FEATURE ‘competitions’ to date, reflecting the film’s continuously growing popularity with Jewish Film Festival audiences in America today. (For the record, “Golda’s Balcony, The Film” won “Best Feature,” “Best Narrative Feature,” and two ‘sole’ “Audience Award Winners” at the Palm Beach, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Charlotte and Honolulu Jewish Film Festivals respectively—a ‘clean sweep’, as it were, in under 8 weeks’ time—at all five of its 5 ‘Award-oriented Fests’—as well as ‘5 of its first 13’ Festivals period, in February-April, 2019 alone.)
The film is, as of April 17, 2019, scheduled to be screened at 27 regional premieres—with possibly 50-70 more festivals to follow—across America, Europe and Israel for the remainder of calendar year 2019. (Official Selections include the 2019 Jewish Film Festivals of Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Dallas, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Tampa Bay, Phoenix, Charlotte, New Jersey, New Hampshire, Honolulu, Westchester, Santa Fe, Westhampton and many others—including 7 “Opening Nights,” 5 “Closing Nights” and 1 “Centerpiece” among them.)
