Vanya Bowden, Program Director of the MJFF:

The fifth year of the MJFF brings with it a significant responsibility. There is a desire to rediscover interests and goals of the Festival, to meet with our regular audiences and welcome new ones. I envision this year’s program to be extremely diverse and of the highest quality. I want to gather a relevant and rich array of films on Jewish culture for the Moscow viewers. And to celebrate those films, of course.
