2019 JCC AMES AMZALAK ROCHESTER JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
Welcome to the 19th year of the JCC Ames Amzalak Rochester Jewish Film Festival (RJFF) underwritten by the William and Sheila Konar Foundation and Rubens Family Foundation. We extend our deepest thanks to all of you who help make this festival such a success. We would not be here without your support, time, creativity and feedback.
Our committee of 18 volunteers was presented with a large number of film submissions to be sorted, screened, and ultimately chosen for our festival. We looked for diversity, relevance, balance, meaning, and so much more. One of our measures is asking ourselves the following: “Do I want to be in the lobby after these films?” The answer is an emphatic, “yes.” This year’s film collection is thought-provoking, moving, and in many cases, quite serious in nature. Maybe it’s a sign of the times. Whatever the reason, we know these 25 films will make you think, and we want to be in the lobby (and at our new post-film hangout spots, Char and Hattie’s) to hear your thoughts.
Thank you and we will see you in the lobby!
