If you haven't heard yet, the Maine Jewish Film Festival is making its way to screens around Portland through Saturday.

Most of the films will cost you $8 to see, but tonight's there's a freebie at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies that's well worth heading out and about on a Monday evening.

"Beyond the Boundaries," presented in conjunction with Maine Adaptive Sports, screens at 6 p.m. at the 561 Congress St. location. The 63-minute film focuses on four disabled Israeli soldiers and their "Ski to Live" experience at an adaptive sports program in Aspen. The documentary is in Hebrew with English subtitles. Director Nina Zale will be at the event for a Q&A following the film.

Here's the trailer:

Also screening tonight at the Nickelodeon are "Mabul," which focuses on 13-year-old Yoni who struggles to grow before his bar mitzvah (8 p.m.), and "This Must Be The Place," a comedy-drama about a wealthy former rock star starring Sean Penn, Frances McDormand and Judd Hirsch (10 p.m.). Click here for the week's full schedule of films.
