The New York Jewish Film Festival, now in its 24th year, remains on the forefront when it comes to the discovery of movies that capture the unique and multi-dimensional Jewish experience in the United States and abroad.

The 2015 edition begins Wednesday with the documentary "The Muses of Isaac Bashevis Singer" and runs through Jan. 29.

It offers a slate ranging from the narrative feature "Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem," about an Orthodox woman fighting for a divorce, to the documentary "Deli Man," about the third-generation operator of Kenny and Ziggy's deli in Houston.

Fans of low-rent '80s action powerhouse Cannon Films will want to check out "The Go-Go Boys: The Inside Story of Cannon Films," about the Israeli producers behind flicks starring Chuck Norris and others.

There are special sections, including New York Noir ("The Naked City" is a must-see), War Against War (don't miss "The Battle of Algiers") and a sidebar dedicated to documentarian Jennie Livingston that includes her iconic "Paris is Burning."

The New York Jewish Film Festival is at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Ticket prices vary,
