Atlanta Jewish Film Festival
The 2014 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is a Wrap! Congratulations to the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival for another record-breaking season. Lasting 22 days and showing 70 films and 119 screenings, this year's AJFF seated approximately 31,000 moviegoers!
Founded in 2000, AJFF ranks as the largest film festival in Atlanta, and second largest Jewish film festival in the United States. AJFF has attracted audiences of more than 30,000 moviegoers, and features an international collection of more than 65 narrative and documentary films (in both feature and short form) that connect with the Jewish experience. Screenings are enhanced by guest appearances with filmmakers, actors, authors, academics and other experts who discuss the movies and answer audience questions.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is a production of the Atlanta Regional Office 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,” film 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 120 other corporate, foundation, government and individual sponsors.
