The Rosenwald Schools received some crucial support recently, including a generous grant from the Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film. The grant will go towards post-production expenses on the upcoming Ciesla Foundation film. Indiewire’s Kerensa Cadenas reports that of the 5 Kroll grants given, 3 went to projects helmed by female filmmakers, including The Rosenwald Schools which is directed by Aviva Kempner. We are extremely appreciative that the Kroll Fund chose to support our project and it’s especially fitting that Kroll would give to a film that celebrates a philanthropist who made innovations in charitable giving almost a century ago.
