The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival opens this weekend and continues through August 9, for those who might be traveling to the Bay Area. “Founded in 1980, the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival is the first and largest of its kind in the world. Today, we are more than a festival: we are the leading advocate for independent Jewish cinema.” For more information including the schedule of films and events, visit SFJFF.org.
Closer to home, the Denver Jewish Film Festival is looking for 5-7 new members for its Teen Film Board and Boulder-area teens may apply. Applicants should be entering grades 9-12, should have an interest in film, and enjoy working with others to plan a very fun event. No specific experience is necessary. Details and application forms are available here.
The Teen Film Board meets on some Sunday afternoons and occasional Thursday evenings as needed August – February. The Teen Film Board is made possible through a grant through the Rose Youth Foundation. This will be the second year for the Teen Film Board. Their inaugural programming included the DJFF screening of the contemporary version of The Wave, with speaker Ron Jones, and a post film social event/party.
High School students who have a service learning requirement can use their participation on the film board to help to meet this requirement. If you are the parent of a high school student, or know of high school students who might be interested, please let them know about the opportunity. Applications must be received by 9 a.m. on Monday, July 26.
