The Asper Foundation Performances: Cultural Arts Series
The Asper Foundation presents, supports and patronizes Jewish cultural arts – enriching Manitoba’s vibrant cultural mosaic.
Since 2001, The Asper Foundation Performances and the Rose and Max Rady Jewish Community Centre have presented the annual Winnipeg International Jewish Film Festival, giving Manitobans a rare opportunity to see unique, contemporary, award-winning films from around the world. It has become the preeminent arts program in both the Jewish and general communities and a cornerstone cultural program at the Rady Jewish Community Centre. Since its inception, over 40,000 people have enjoyed compelling, innovative and award-winning feature films and documentaries from a global perspective but with a Jewish lens.
The ongoing patronage of The Asper Foundation as a major benefactor of the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre has been an important factor in the theatre’s success.
