Held annually at the Coolidge Corner Theatre since 2011, The Brookline Youth Awards provides an opportunity for Brookline residents to hear about the character, challenges, and dreams of its young people, as well as adults dedicated to their success, through the power and intimacy of video interviews. More than 150 video interviews have been produced for the event and close to 600 students and 30 adults have been recognized.


“Soul Witness, The Brookline Holocaust Witness Project” is based on more than 80 hours of 30-year-old Holocaust testimonies. The interview tapes were uncovered from a metal closet in the Brookline Health Department for the making of this film. The film has sold out several screenings including six sellouts at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. “Soul Witness” also screened in Pittsburgh to benefit the three congregations affected by the October 27, 2018 mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.

“Soul Witness, The Brookline Holocaust Witness Project” is now available on video on demand with thirty percent of revenue from VOD sales going to benefit nonprofits dedicated to helping eradicate intolerance.


“Brookline, Facing Civil Rights” is based on the experiences of six Brookline residents during the civil rights movement and what it was like for African Americans to move to a segregated Brookline during the 1960s. Also interviewed in the film, Gov. Michael Dukakis paints an unvarnished picture of Brookline’s racial/religious climate during this turbulent period. “Facing Civil Rights” first screened as part of Brookline’s 2019 Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. On January 9, 2020, the film screened at the Coolidge, with all proceeds going to the Brookline Food Pantry.

“Facing Civil Rights” is now available on Video on Demand with all proceeds from VOD sales going to support the Brookline Community Foundation’s Safety Net Fund.
