The audience award screenings are over, but you can still get your fill of international and independent film at the Atlanta Film Festival.
Our audience award screenings are just a few days away and we excited to be about to re-show these favorite films. But, if you're wondering "How do they decide on these films to show again?" Truth is, we don't decide. You do!
In honor of the kick-off of the 6th Annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, we'd like to take this opportunity to highlight AJFF films that celebrated the music.
We are pleased to help spread the word and share with you information from one of our community partners: the 6th annual Atlanta Jewish Music Festival (AJMF6) will feature local, regional, national and international Jewish musicians.
Join us on Sunday, March 22 at GTC Merchants Walk for your last chance to see audience favorites from the 15th annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is pleased to announce a truly historic accomplishment. Thanks to your enthusiastic support and participation, AJFF has now achieved the rank of the world’s largest Jewish film festival with a record-breaking 38,600+ moviegoers.
We want to say a BIG thank you to all our committee members, volunteer leadership, and on-site volunteer staff.
At our 2014 Festival, 'Ida' made its Atlanta premiere. This year, the excellence that we saw in the film when selecting it for the festival, was recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by being presented with the 2015 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
Another edition of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival has come to a close. After 177 screenings of 65 extraordinary films, there's just one thing left to do...Tell us what you think!
After each AJFF screening, you received a ballot allowing you to rank the film. The results have been tallied, and we are thrilled to announce the winners of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Audience Awards.
There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into making the festival run smoothly. A key component is our Program Manager, Shellie Schmals, who is in charge of getting the films from the distributor and to the theater.
Starting today, encore screenings of AJFF's most popular films will begin and continue through Thursday afternoon. Tickets remain, but time is running out. Don't miss your last chance to see the best of AJFF.
As a small staff, we rely heavily on the support of our volunteer leadership. We are fortunate to have a number of dedicated industry professional that help us out on our committees before the festival and speakers during the festival.
