VIJFF 2022: IN REVIEW
The 8th annual VIJFF was a veritable success! Modelling how a program of fulsome ‘movie events’ attracts a diversity of appreciative audiences, the 2022 VIJFF exemplified community building within Victoria’s Jewish community, meaningful engagement with and outreach to others, and solid supports from its partners & funders (most notably VicPD). Captivating its audiences by celebrating culture and community, the 2022 VIJFF’s staged its curated programme of films as ‘film events’ featuring live music, conversations with directors & others, and in-cinema snacks (nosh) that celebrated Jewish, Middle Eastern, and related cultural cuisine. The VIJFF Family Program entertained with a charming inter-cultural film (Hannah Cohen’s Holy Communion). These successes, plus having attracted larger audiences and reached more on-line viewers than ever before, is informing the program of ‘film events’ for the 2023 VIJFF.
Leveraging its cross-cultural foundations to create captivating ‘film events’, the VIJFF’s upcoming program will again attract a diversity of audiences: cinephiles, families, and those for whom Jewish & Jewish-adjacent themes are of cultural interest.
