"For the first time ever JNF will bring together some of the biggest names in entertainment to explore in depth the connection between Hollywood and Israel,” said Russell F. Robinson, CEO of JNF. "All the panelists have personal ties to Israel and will deliver an informed professional perspective on the importance of the growing Israeli film industry."
The JNF panel features some of Hollywood’s top executives and long-time supporters of Israel: Howard Gordon, Emmy® Award Winning Writer and Producer who is known for his hit shows Homeland, 24, and the X Files; Howard Rosenman, Academy Award-Winning producer (Family Man, Father of the Bride); Rick Rosen, Head of Television Department, William Morris Endeavor; and Gail Berman, Chairperson and CEO of The Jackal Group.

Rob Schiller, a JNF Los Angeles board member and two-time Emmy® Award winning director will make introductions.
Panelists will share their professional experiences and perspectives on establishing and growing the film and television industry’s Hollywood-Israel connection, including the increase in private-funded filming, the aftermath of 9/11 and its impact on the industry and relations toward Israel, and how the recent crisis in Israel impacted the television and film industry.
The JNF website announced "Each of the panelists has a strong connection to Israel." At the Sunday gala, Governor Jerry Brown and his wife Anne Gust Brown will receive the group's 'Green Innovation Award'.
