Jen Kaplan

Jen Kaplan is a documentary filmmaker with a background in marketing, fundraising, event planning and non-profit management. Her first love was always the magic of stories – listening to them, learning from them, and eventually learning how to tell them in a visual way through the medium of film. Since 2000, Jen has been making films. Her first film MIXED BLESSINGS: THE CHALLENGES OF RAISING CHILDREN IN A JEWISH-CHRISTIAN FAMILY was shown in film festivals across the globe and aired on several PBS stations. She worked as a Fundraising Producer at Connecticut Public Television and served as the Associate Director of Filmmakers Collaborative in Boston. Since 2011, she has focused her efforts on producing short films (4-7 minutes) for clients including Combined Jewish Philanthropies, Brandeis University, Mayyim Hayyim Community Mikveh, and LimmudBoston and other non- profits. She is working on several films with her company Spencer Films.
