he Israel Film Center at JCC Manhattan in partnership with the Washington Jewish Film Festival and JCCA presents:

Jewish Film Presenters Network Conference – Washington DC Deb 25-26

Join us for two informative and fun filled days of conversation and workshops that will set new standards for presentation of Jewish film and festivals. Meet and learn from your colleagues and other experts in the field of film programming. Conversations will be geared for both emerging and established festivals.

Topics include:

New Sharing Models
Outreach, PR & Marketing
Fundraising & Sponsorship
Distributor & industry Mini-Market

Conference schedule and featured speakers to be announced January 2014. Registration cost includes 4 meals.
The conference is being hosted during the Washington Jewish Film Festival (WJFF), which runs Feb 19-Mar 1, and we are happy to extend full-access Festival passes for all Conference attendees. Registrants are encouraged to stay for the Festival beyond the conference dates to get a fuller festival experience. We expect the experience of attending one of the largest and most prestigious Jewish film festivals in the US will prove instructive (especially for smaller and mid-size festivals) — and provide a practical example of the practices will will discuss in Conference sessions on operations, marketing, programming, and sponsor relations.
The WJFF will host over 12,000 attendees, as well as over 50 visiting filmmakers, academics and leading industry figures. WJFF staff will also be happy to connect Festival directors with visiting filmmakers for offline meetings (actual scheduling responsibilities will lay between yourselves and the filmmakers, but WJFF will provide contact info as long as the request is received 2+ weeks prior to the Festival’s start).

The entire event will take place at:
Washington DC JCC
1529 16th St NW
