"The films we are showing cut a wide swath through the national psyche," says longtime festival coordinator David Magidson...

Magidson is proud of the fest's popular success -- 30,000 viewers are expected this year. He also believed it has "transformed the community, both Jewish and non-Jewish. We have pushed for understanding and tried to give ourselves a peek behind the curtain that often keeps us from knowing ourselves and each other."
