A careful look at the films from the past year shows a large number of Christian-themed films – often released and supported through outside-the-multiplex methods like church screenings. Jewish-themed cinema is also reaching a growing audience, thanks in part to film festivals like the Washington Jewish Film Festival. This year, the festival is celebrating 25 years of sharing groundbreaking Jewish cinema. Founder of the festival, award-winning writer, director and producer Aviva Kempner, will join us to discuss her latest film, “The Rosenwald Schools” and the impact the film festival has had over the past 25 years.
