The 2020 Michael Jay Kinsler Rainmaker Award

SOJOURN’s Michael Jay Kinsler Rainmaker Award will be presented to AJFF and Kenny Blank for 20 years of showing films that tell the stories of gender and sexually diverse (GSD) people and for their inclusive and welcoming community engagement. Acknowledging AJFF’s mission of seeking to use the power of film to both entertain and educate, AJFF challenges conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing the Jewish and global communities. Under Kenny’s leadership, AJFF’s has fearlessly approached showing LGBTQ-affirming films, even when they provoke discomfort or prompt difficult questions.

About the Michael Jay Kinsler Rainmaker Award

In 2014, the Rainmaker Award was renamed in honor of Michael Jay Kinsler. Michael was an active member of Congregation Bet Haverim and the Atlanta LGBT community and dedicated much of his life to ensuring that gay and lesbian Jews had a place to worship where they could find solace and pride. We hope to honor Michael’s legacy of inclusion and action for many years to come.
