One Community, Many Voices

“At the JBFC, I learn about people and stories from all over the globe. The programs give me a front row seat to dance, music, and theater, and open my eyes to social justice issues.”
-Allison Chernow, JBFC Member and Donor

“My favorite thing about coming to the JBFC is making memories. I was here in second grade with my class to watch a movie and it was really fun. This year is cool because I’m at the Lab making a move.”
-Alex Vaquero, RSHM Life Center, Sleepy Hollow

“The JBFC has given me an understanding of what it means to live and work as a creator. I can enter the industry confident in my abilities as a filmmaker.”
-Aisha Amin, JBFC Creative Culture Fellow
