Though audiences will experience most of this year’s Atlanta Jewish Film Festival in the Virtual Cinema, organizers were also committed to finding fun and innovative ways to safely bring the community together. Thus, plans for a night at the drive-in were born! Three nights, actually. Thanks to an exclusive partnership with Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the 2021 AJFF will feature screenings at the 11-acre greenspace, The Home Depot Backyard. This safe-but-shared moviegoing experience, set against a spectacular backdrop, will include Young Professionals Night and the SXSW comedy of discomfort, Shiva Baby, plus a pair of campy, kitschy 80s classics: Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs and the musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors. To learn more about the drive-in experience AJFF has in store for you at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, including some special extras, join our latest podcast as host Sara is joined by our drive-in event planners, Film AJFF Programming Manager Shellie Schmals and Event Operations Manager Chris Holland.
