On April 19th, Aviva attended the closing of the 2016 Dayton Jewish Film Fest with a screening of Rosenwald. This is the third time she has been in Dayton with her films as previously speaking with her movies on Hank Greenberg and Gertrude Berg.
The screening was in honor of the memory of Carole Rabinowitz who, with her husband Bernard, funded Ciesla’s past films. Her memory will live on in her many philanthropic contributions to the Jewish community of Dayton.
After the screening, Aviva attended a discussion on the film with Film Fest Chair Martin Gottlieb.
The 2016 Dayton Jewish Film Fest was presented by the JCC of Greater Dayton. Below is a a picture of Aviva with members of the Rabinowitz family members.
