The 2010 Film Fund Grantees

Four of our 2010 Film Fund Grantees

The Foundation for Jewish Culture granted $140,000 to five exemplary documentaries, ensuring their delivery to film festivals, television, and other distribution outlets. The grants, which range between $20,000 and $35,000 each, will enable filmmakers to pay license fees for archival footage, complete additional shooting, and reach a wider audience through outreach and engagement strategies.

The 2010 grantees of the Foundation’s Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film include: Joann Sfar Draws From Memory (US/France, directed and produced by Sam Ball), a portrait of one of France’s most celebrated graphic novelists; Regarding Susan Sontag (US, directed and produced by Nancy Kates), a spotlight on the life and work of the late American writer and icon; The Law in These Parts (Israel/US, directed by Ra’anan Alexandrowicz and produced by Liran Atzmor and Laura Poitras), an examination of Israeli military tribunals in the Occupied Territories; Numbered (Israel, directed by Dana Doron and Uriel Sinai, and produced by Hilla Medalia and Neta Zwebner-Zaibert), a meditation on the relationship between Holocaust survivors and their tattoos; and The Hangman (Israel, directed by Netalie Braun and Avigail Sperber), a chronicle of Adolf Eichmann’s executioner.

2010 was another record year, with nearly 100 grant applications from around the world. Selected by a rigorous panel of scholars, critics, filmmakers, and curators, the 2010 grantees reflect the global diversity of contemporary Jewish culture.Check out the official press release here.
