and Film.

Wonderful photography by Anita Bowen.

For the past few months, I have been working with the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. I started as an intern working in programing with Joshua Moore and Jay Rosenblatt, but recently I was staffed as the video/photography coordinator for the many great events that have been occurring at the beautiful, historical Castro theatre. I have had such a great time working for the SFJFF and have been enjoying the great films that the festival has curated. Thursday was the closing night event at the Castro, A.K.A. Doc Pomus, a fantastic music documentary, followed by a live performance by Andy Cabic, Eric D. Johnson, Kelly Stoltz, and Sonny Smith. After the event there was a night-cap at Churchhill (right down the street on church/market). A large collective of the festival staff made their way over and enjoyed a few drinks and a sloppy game of pool.

Before the festival was a fantastically fun shabbat dinner where we were joined by festival guests, Elliott Gould (pictured above) and Judy Blume. Lexi Leban, the festival director running the show for her first year, broke bread with all the staff. There were several filmmakers in attendance and we all conversed until the late hours of the night over several bottles of wine.

The festival still isn’t over though, please go enjoy the rest of the festival’s events running through the first week of August. I’m especially looking forward to the event at Art Murmur with a special short film screening on Friday August 3rd. So, if you want to enjoy the show and meet the staff, come on by and look me up.
