Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

Following the film, we will have the opportunity to hear from special guest speakers who were once refugees, including Mr. Solomon Awan, one of the “lost boys”. Please bring an in-kind donation of a first aid kit, a component of a first aid kit, or a fire extinguisher. These donations will be given to newly arriving refugee families here in Utah.
There will be a tasting of Israeli foods from local chefs, followed by a showing of “In Search of Israeli Cuisine” (97 min, USA, Documentary). A portrait of the Israeli people told through food. The film puts a face on the culture of Israel, profiling chefs, home cooks, vintners, and cheese-makers drawn from the more than 100 cultures that make up Israel today – Jewish, Arab, Muslim, Christian, Druze. What emerges is a rich and personal story of the Israeli people.
The movie day will begin with a showing of “Belle and Sebastian” (104 min, French, Family Drama, 10+) – A six-year-old boy and his dog look to foil a Nazi effort to capture French Resistance fighters.
Jewish Shorts – 4 short films that show different perspectives on modern Jewish and Israeli life:
Bulmus/Caught in the Net (6min) – A comedy based on the story, Bulmus, by Israeli writer and director Ephraim Rishon.
The Making of a Mensch (11 min) – The Making of a Mensch explores ancient Jewish ideas about being a “mensch” – aka being a good person, thinking of the bigger picture, and living a meaningful, purposeful life – through a vibrant 21st century lens.
The Seder (12 min) Leo brings his new partner Mitchell home to meet his parents on the night of their Passover Seder, for an evening that is anything but orthodox.
Dear God (13 min, Israel) – ‘Dear God’ depicts a romantic Jerusalem, told through the eyes of Aaron, a simple man who guards the historic wailing wall. One day a beautiful, mysterious woman puts a note in one of the holy drones, and Aaron decides to fulfill her deepest wish, while learning that love is all about communication.
7 PM Apples in the Desert (96 min, Israel, Drama) – The rebellious daughter of ultra-Orthodox parents journeys into the secular world in a romantic coming-of-age tale that explores themes of love, reconciliation and tradition versus modernity.
