Each year, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival bestows special recognition to outstanding films and filmmakers participating in its annual international celebration of the cinema arts. In Competition titles vie for honors across six Jury Prize categories, including Best Narrative, Documentary, and Short, as well as Building Bridges, Human Rights, and Emerging Filmmaker. These prestigious prizes are deliberated by an esteemed panel of industry luminaries, including fellow filmmakers, actors, film critics and journalists, academics, and exceptional students. Joining our In Conversation podcast to talk about the importance of Jury Prizes to audiences, filmmakers and the festival’s mission, we’ll talk with AJFF Jury chairperson Gabe Wardell. It’s also a chance to learn about which AJFF films are in contention this year, our impressive roster of jurors, plus a preview of the big Awards Show, coming up Wednesday March 10. So join host Sara and her special guest as we get ready to find out who the winners are!
