Miami Jewish Film Festival Announces $18,000 Prize
From the Miami New Times
The Miami Jewish Film Festival announced today that it will launch a competition sidebar in which select films will be judged and compete for the $18,000 Grand Jury Prize. This cash prize marks the first such award to be offered by any Jewish film festival in the world. Sponsored by the American real estate firm Crescent Heights, the new Grand Jury Prize will be open to any filmmaker whose feature film work, both narrative and documentary, presents either a substantial portion of its content as Jewish interest or is produced in Israel.
