The Maaleh School of Film and Television initiated the Homeward project in September, after months of preparation and coalition-building. Homeward is a short-video competition open to anyone interested – professional filmmakers and celebrities, public figures, amateur filmmakers and essentially everyone with a camera/cellphone. The theme “homeward” was developed in the spirit of the period – the feeling of coming home, going home, staying home… with which many around the world can identify, as the Corona pandemic has forced us to remain at home and distance ourselves from our closest friends and family (with whom we often feel most ‘at home’).

At Jerusalem U, we’re creating Jewish- and Israel-related content that younger people will watch. In 2017, we made a strategic decision to expand from our primary focus on feature-length films to also include YouTube. We wanted to offer another portal of entry to our audiences, and began experimenting with YouTube videos as a way of meeting young people in more places where they hang out.

The critically acclaimed documentary trilogy “Russian Jews,” which intimately portrays the stories of Russian Jewry throughout the 20th century, is now available online on Youtube, courtesy of Genesis Philanthropy Group. Following a record-breaking theatrical release across Russia, a premiere at Israel’s Knesset, sold-out screenings across the United States, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Latvia and Georgia as well as Jewish film festivals in Moscow, Manchester, Atlanta and Australia, the series, which was created by famous Russian journalist/TV host Leonid Parfenov and produced by Genesis Philanthropy Group and Studio Namdeni, will now reach an even wider audience, providing much-needed context surrounding Russian-Jewish heritage and history.

BimBam (formerly G-dcast) is a Jewish media studio. Our creative team has worked on over 300 short videos and apps, and we have big league experience from Apple, Pixar, the New York Times, etc. Usually, people find us through our work—they don’t ask us too many creative questions beyond, “Can I do a part in a video?” That’s because they or their kids already love the programs, and it’s easy to see our track record. Our Judaism 101 and early childhood education videos have clear and easily shared metrics—high viewership numbers, great audience retention curves and accurate aim at the demographics we’re targeting. What we do get asked routinely is, “Since this is media, how can you know that you’re really having an impact? What proof do you have that video can build Jewish identity or literacy?”
