The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (1/30 – 2/20)
The largest film festival in Atlanta – and second largest Jewish film festival in the United States – officially began yesterday and will run through February 20.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a 22-day cinematic exploration of Jewish life, culture and history. Seeking to use the power of film to both entertain and educate, AJFF challenges conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing both the Jewish and global communities.
Founded in 2000, AJFF ranks as the largest film festival in Atlanta, and second largest Jewish film festival in the United States, having attracted an audience of more than 30,000 moviegoers in 2012. This year, the festival will feature an international collection of 71 narrative and documentary films that explore the Jewish experience. Screenings are supplemented by guest appearances with filmmakers, actors, authors, academics and other expert speakers.
Moviegoers cast their ballots for the Best Narrative and Best Documentary features of the festival, as well as separate balloting for narrative and documentary short films. Winners receive the AJFF Audience Award and are honored with a special encore screening and statuette.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is a production of the Atlanta Chapter of American Jewish Committee, an international advocacy organization that works to build bridges of understanding between ethnic, religious and national groups. It is the enduring belief of American Jewish Committee that understanding grows out of shared experiences, and stories are often the best way to foster such experiences. More than just “a night at the movies,” the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is contemporary storytelling with the ability to impact the way audiences feel, think, and behave after leaving the theater.
AJFF is the past recipient of prestigious grants from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and National Endowment for the Arts, and generously supported by more than 250 other corporate, foundation, government, and individual sponsors.
