New Jewish Filmmaking Project
The New Jewish Filmmaking Project, produced by Citizen Film, is a year-round program of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. Since 2002, more than 100 young adult storytellers, ages 15-25 have worked with the NJFP to create sophisticated, authentically personal documentary projects, viewed by some 300,000 people to date.
This year, we're inviting teen and young adult artists to investigate their surroundings by reinterpreting the guidelines for building a Sukkah: a temporary dwelling that invites Jews to consider the balance between rootedness and impermanence, and the relationship between constructed and natural environments. View the NJFP's evolving BUILT: Virtual Sukkah Project, and get involved!
A selection of the best work by young artists will be projected at our "Virtual Sukkot" launch party, at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, October 4th, 2012. Email email@example.com to find out how you can join the fun.
|BUILT: Film Screening and Photo Launch Party
OCT 04 | 6-8 PM
All teens are invited to witness how rules and challenges can inspire creativity and progress. The event features two short films presented by San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, Freeflow, a film about parkour, the physical art of navigating through obstacles by climbing, vaulting, and rolling and An Oasis on the Hill, a film about a village that was built as an experiment to unite a community of Jews and Arabs. The screening will be followed by the premier unveiling of photographs created by over 60 San Francisco teens participating in Citizen Film’s project, BUILT. Experience how these photographers artistically reinterpret the guidelines for building a Sukkah, a temporary shelter for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
