Boston Jewish Film Festival awards

Festival Audience Votes Its Favorites
Two Awards Given at 2010 Boston Jewish Film Festival

The audience at this year’s 22nd annual Boston Jewish Film Festival has voted its favorites. In total, the Festival screened 36 films from 15 countries. The Festival’s audience voted in two categories, Best Feature Fiction and Best Documentary Feature.

Award-winners are as follows:
- Best Feature Fiction: Saviors in the Night (Unter Bauern – Retter in der Nacht), directed by Ludi Boeken (Germany/France, 2009, 95 min., 35mm) had its Massachusetts Premiere screening in this year’s Festival.

Dutch director and producer Ludi Boeken’s newest feature depicts farmers in Germany’s Westphalia who hid Marga Spiegel, her husband Menne and their daughter Karin from 1943 until 1945. The farmers humbly hid the family members, without a sense of their own bravery, even as the growing Nazi Youth Movement increased their risk. Marga Spiegel’s 1965 memoir helped memorialize them as Righteous Gentiles in Yad VaShem Living Holocaust Memorial. Well-known German actors Veronica Ferres and Margarita Broich give powerful performances.

U.S. distributor of Saviors in the Night is Menemsha Films (www.menemshafilms.com)

- Best Documentary Feature: My So-Called Enemy by Lisa Gossels (USA, 2010, 90 minutes, video) had its New England Premiere screening in this year’s Festival.

Emmy Award-winning Lisa Gossels (The Children of Chabannes, 1999 Festival) returns with My So-Called Enemy. This Wayland native follows six young Palestinian and Israeli women who meet as teens in a 2002 U.S. women’s leadership program, Building Bridges for Peace. Their experience dramatically complicates the next seven years of their lives. Gal, a Jewish Israeli, and Rezan, a Christian Palestinian, find their friendship especially challenged when Gal enters the Israeli army. My So-Called Enemy depicts the painstaking effort behind even the smallest steps toward peace.

My So-Called Enemy is a Good Egg Production (www.mysocalledenemy.com)



Sony Creative Software has generously donated the awards, given to each film’s director, in the form of Sony Vegas Pro 10 film editing software.

Jpeg photos are available for each of this year’s winning films.
