The 15th Annual Rutgers Jewish Film Festival
Oct 31 all-day

Sponsored by the Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life

The 15th Annual
Rutgers Jewish Film Festival
October 29 – November 9, 2014
The Rutgers Jewish Film Festival, sponsored by the Bildner Center, screens award winning international films over the ten-day festival. A broad approach is taken when choosing the films for the Rutgers Festival, offering a slate of critically acclaimed titles that explore the multi-layered, global Jewish experience. Some films tackle uniquely Jewish issues, while others address universal themes through a Jewish lens. With such a diverse selection, the festival draws a wide audience, reaching the region’s Jewish population as well as the Rutgers University community and the general film-going public.
The Bildner Center makes each screening a multidimensional experience by inviting a guest speaker – either the director, a featured actor or a noted expert in the field – to preface each film and then engage in a dialogue with the audience at its conclusion. Year after year, attendees remark that this opportunity to ask the questions raised by these thought-provoking films makes the issues more personally relevant and their film festival participation more meaningful.
Unique, too, is the way the festival not only reaches out to the community, but also gives back to the university by exposing the general student body to these distinctive films. Professors of Jewish Studies and other academic departments at Rutgers are among the speakers invited to introduce the films, and they will often assign related films to their classes. Students also have the opportunity to meet visiting film directors and scholars.
The Film Festival is made possible through the ongoing support of the Karma Foundation. An endowment established by David and Sylvia Steiner sponsors the screening of one special film during the festival each year. Additional sponsors include the Regal Entertainment Group, and a growing list of Rutgers Jewish Film Festival Patrons.
