Jazz musician, Joe Alterman, gives his unique perspective on the work of Saul Bass and his collaborative work in film.
Keep an eye out for two classics back on the big screen from Turner Classic Movies, one of the highest grossing films ever, and more in this month's edition.
In June, we are proud to present Maynard, which celebrates the legacy of Atlanta’s first black mayor. Produced in partnership with the Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition.
As Israel turns 70, AJFF celebrates the only way we really know how, through film. We asked a handful of AJFF stakeholders their favorite three films, Hollywood, Israeli, or otherwise, to add to your watch lists for this landmark anniversary.
We're incredibly proud that AJFF attracts some of the most talented, passionate people. We rely heavily on this village to make AJFF what it is, and we're going to introduce you to some of the people who make up that village. From our staff, to our volunteers, or even to members of our audience, there's a huge group of people that make AJFF a world-class cultural event. This month, we're putting the spotlight on Danny Davis of Protect Awesome and Production Designer of AJFF’s newest annual program, Cinebash.
The latest film from an AJFF Icon, an audience favorite from the 2018 AJFF, and more populate this month's picks.
The theme of Cinebash 2018 is simple:, step into the world of Saul Bass. Even if you don’t know the celebrated graphic designer’s name, you know his work, which continues to resonate long after his passing. Arguably best known for his film title designs for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, and Billy Wilder, the range of his work encompassed branding, marketing and poster design, and even his own films.
We're so excited to begin to evaluate films for the 2019 AJFF and we need your help! We invite you to take a fun look at some pitfalls to avoid as you apply this year.

Tickets are available for the latest in our monthly film series, AJFF Selects. In April, we are proud to present A Memoir of War, a critically-acclaimed, heartrending reflection on wartime grief, based on author Marguerite Duras’ autobiographical novel.
