About the Event: "We're 21! Drink Up the Culture!"
The Stroum Jewish Community Center thanks festival sponsors and donors and welcomes honored guests by offering them a scrumptious, expansive buffet of authentic rustic Italian dishes, great wine and desserts at downtown Seattle's favorite trattoria, Il Fornaio. Rub shoulders with festival VIPs, local and international filmmakers and guest artists, dignitaries, SJCC board members and local leaders at this annual fete and festive feast.
This year we toast our 2016 REAL/REEL Difference Award recipients: SJFF founding chair, Deborah Rosen and Peabody-winning, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Aviva Kempner, whose film ROSENWALD screens before the event.
VIP Gala Dinner Invitations and sponsor benefits will be mailed in early March. Please alert firstname.lastname@example.org if you did not receive them.
