“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”
                                                                            – Abraham Lincoln

                                               Mission Statement

Kef Cinema will promote friendship among the various teenage ethnic groups in the Galil Maaravi through the creation of unique films and videos.  The experience of working creatively together will produce a long-lasting bond based on respect, understanding, and shared accomplishment.
Kef Cinema will supply teenagers between the ages of 13-17 with:
          —Access to members of an Advisory Board composed of well-          known Hollywood and Israeli filmmakers who represent all  aspects of filmmaking.
          —Master Classes taught by advisory board members in script development, casting, production, editing etc.
          —The use of film production equipment and facilities.
          —Continual guidance through the entire production process from script development through final editing.
          —Advisory Board assistance in the distribution of finished film and video projects.

Each group’s finished product will represent a cinematic expression that is meaningful to all its members; and if it is saleable, the funds received will be placed in bank accounts designated for the education of the creators. 10% will be kept for the company as reimbursement for costs. An annual International Youth Film Festival established with the help of the Advisory Board will provide wide exposure for completed Kef projects as well as global participants.
Kef Cinema offers participants a collaborative creative experience that fosters self-expression, a spirit of cooperation, and mutual respect. Also, it generates the pride that comes from having contributed to a film or video that will be viewed by individuals around the world. Perhaps the most significant benefit is the friendships and understanding across differing cultures that will be forged through participation in Kef Cinema.*

*Funding will be used for location and equipment rentals, staffing salaries, and office expenses, and will be managed by Kibbutz Cabri’s educational foundation. And visit our website at www.kefcinema.org to view our Advisory Board and Power Point presentation!

Campaign by
Sue Liberman, Founder and Executive Director.
Northern District, Israel

Sue Liberman founded Kef Cinema after driving around the Western Galilee on vacation, and noticing the various thriving Moslem, Christian and Jewish towns and villages with residents living safely together. After discovering that teenagers in this area had not yet experienced multi-ethnic events, she decided to "do something," about connecting these young people from different backgrounds with each other. After much thought, Sue realized the knowledge and skills she developed during a 30-year career in film and TV production could be used as the basis for a multi-ethnic program designed to promote friendship among these teenagers. By working together on the creation of videos and films, participants can share ideas, learn how to work cooperatively, and gain respect for differing cultures. Kef Cinema's Advisory Board is composed of filmmaking professionals from Costume Designers to Actors and Producers. These advisors will lead Master Classes and guide teen teams into creating the best possible video and film products for distribution around the world.
