Our team has gathered around the idea of creating the Moscow Jewish Film Festival for two reasons. We all have deep connections with the Moscow Jewish community, and for each of us the art of cinematography is not only an area of professional interest, but a way of getting to know the unexplored. Together we are working on providing the Moscow audience with an opportunity to immerse themselves into Jewish culture by watching films that are dedicated to it.
