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.
With 3,000 Jewish teenagers in town from all over the country, we saw an opportunity to reach the next generation of festival goers. We stopped by NFTY convention this weekend to talk with teens about our film festival and answer some of their filmmaking questions.
As the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival enters its final week, the buzz is growing about our surprise encore screenings.
After receiving a standing ovation Raise the Roof, filmmakers, Yari Wolinsky and Cary Wolinsky, and film subjects, Laura and Rick Brown, participated in a Q&A about the film and the project. Here are some highlights from the discussion.
Part of what makes our festival exciting is the memories that are created here. And the best way to capture those moments in through photographs. We have a wonderful group of sponsors who offer up their photography services to the festival.
New this year, some of the most popular and in-demand movies of the festival are receiving a surprise repeat screening. If you missed a film or couldn't get tickets, this is your chance to catch those audience favorites.
