About the project
The Moonlight Cinema Festival is an annual, three-evening event of free, outdoor performances followed by film screenings.The event was inspired by the New York Summer Film Festival in Bryant Park, New York City.The festival is organized by the Jerusalem Film Center and the Jerusalem Foundation in conjunction with the Jerusalem International Film Festival. For several years the festival was held at the Koret Liberty Bell Park’s Klagsbrun Amphitheater. In 2005, it was staged in an undeveloped area behind the old Jerusalem train station and the Ma’abada Theater. The festival draws approximately 6,000 people each year.
