More than 400 guests filled two theaters at the SouthSide Works Cinemas Thursday to see what "Directors With Real Matzah Balls" could do. It was opening night for JFilm, the Jewish film festival presented annually by the Pittsburgh Jewish Film Forum.

The festival, which runs through April 11, opened with the Pittsburgh premiere of "The Infidel," the first of 21 films being shown. After the credits, the Middle Eastern sounds of Ishtar greeted guests along with a belly dancer, drinks and sweets. Marian Finegold chaired the party, while Iris Samson chaired the entire festival.

Feeling reely good was JFF executive director Kathryn Spitz Cohan (with Jeff), Amy and Lou Weiss, Danny and Nina Butler, Malke Frank, Sarah Angrist, Robert Levin, Richard Rauh and the PG's Sally Kalson (with Ed Feinstein).
