Jeanine Meerapfel is president of the Academy of Arts, multiple award-winning director and author. This year's tribute is dedicated to her.
The homage clearly goes beyond a mere show of works, as the films impress with their timeless personal reflection of the human condition. In double features, some of her films are combined with a thematically appropriate, current film by a young filmmaker.
We spoke with Jeanine Meerapfel and asked her what she is most looking forward to at the Jewish Film Festival. You can watch the whole interview on our YouTube channel via the following link.
