The GJFF is devoted to exploring Jewish arts and culture in more ways than just film. It’s why in addition to the incredible film screenings, happy hours and intermissions we’re serving up this year, the GJFF has partnered with talented local muralist, Adam Schrimmer, who will be creating an interactive experience for our guests. The artwork concepts will consist of themed paintings about the movies that are being screened. Adam will draw the image ahead of time in black and then during the event, Adam will guide the guests to take part in a paint by numbers experience. Each event evening, a 4’ x 8’ panel will be completed by our guests that represents the movie being shown. The panels will then be donated as “traveling artwork” to businesses in the Greenville community in order to bring awareness to the GJFF.
We look forward to everyone’s participation in the symbolic and artistic endeavor!
The GJFF mission is simple: showcase films that expose the community of Greenville to the rich and diverse heritage of Judaism. Our hope is that through the art of film, we can inspire our community to see beyond differences, and rather connect over the ties that bind us all, like respect, love and passion. Our selection of movies allows for an opportunity to think critically and feel powerfully.
