By Staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The free winter edition of the Jewish Film Festival, takes place Sunday at Park Place Stadium Cinemas.

First up is a 2 p.m. showing of the 2013 U.S. documentary "When Comedy Went to School" (83 minutes), which tracks the birth of modern stand-up comedy with the rise of Jewish-American comedians in the Catskill Mountains.

At 3:30 p.m., there's a screening of the 2012 French drama "The Other Son" (105 minutes) in which two young men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, discover they were accidentally switched at birth.

The 14-year-old West Virginia Jewish Film Festival is a bi-annual event funded by the Federated Jewish Charities of Charleston; it is one of the longest-running Jewish film events in the country. For more information, call festival director Fred Pollock at 304-380-4842.
