World-famous actress, comedian and writer, Joan Rivers said: "I am thrilled for the First Annual Jewish Film Festival in the Bronx. As a New Yorker through and through, there is no better place to celebrate Jewish films - both classic features and more contemporary hits - than the Bronx. Thank you to Senator Klein for presenting this festival and for giving New Yorkers an excuse to re-watch these films or see them for the first time."

"As a life-long New Yorker,  I have always had a strong appreciation for Jewish film and culture.  I am thrilled that the first Bronx Jewish Film Festival will take place later this month in Riverdale.  Thank you to Senator Jeff Klein for giving New Yorkers of all ages and background the opportunity to see these wonderful films,” said acting and comic legend Jerry Stiller.
