The Outreach Potential of Jewish Film Festivals

By Gail Quets, Hannah Greenstein

Big Tent Judaism / Jewish Outreach Institute (JOI), September 2002

This report looks at the operations of innovative Jewish projects, including Jewish film festivals, to determine whether or not they could be enlisted as partners in the outreach effort. The piece questions whether the Jewish community can connect with un- and under-affiliated Jews by engaging them in new Jewish activities. The report finds that non-traditional venues like film festivals are an important, and perhaps permanent, addition to Jewish life in American. In addition it finds that cooperation between film festivals and the outreach movement could be beneficial to both.
