TEANECK, N.J. -- The Bergen Section of the National Council of Jewish Women, based in Bergenfield, will host a screening of the new documentary, "Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA" and a discussion with State Sen. Loretta Weinberg and one of the film's producers on Sunday, Nov. 6.

The NCJW is sponsoring the film as part of the 2016 Teaneck International Film Festival. It's the first year the organization has partnered with TIFF.

The festival, with its theme of "Activism: Making Change" this year, will take place from Nov. 3-6 and show independent features, documentaries and shorts, will a goal of inspiring discussion, debate and the desire to do something to make a difference.

Here's how organizers describe the film:

Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, & the NRA features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims' families. The film exposes how the powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting responsible legislation for the sake of profit and putting people into danger. It looks into gun tragedies, including unintended shootings, domestic violence, suicides, mass shootings and trafficking and concludes with what we can do to end this profit-driven crisis.
