February 15, 2015 — One of the highlights of the 2015 Festival was legendary performer Theodore Bikel (Z"L) being in attendance to receive the Greater Phoenix Jewish Film Festival’s first Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award at the screening of his film,“Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem.” The Mayor of Scottsdale, Jim Lane, was on hand to officially proclaim February 15, 2015 Theodore Bikel Day in Scottsdale.
