Atlanta Jewish Film Festival

Atlanta, GA 30301

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a 23-day cinematic exploration of identity, history and culture, as well as life in the State of Israel. 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 attracting an audience of more than 31,500 moviegoers. The 2014 AJFF will feature an international collection of 65 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 documentary films of the festival, with winners receiving the AJFF Audience Award. Winning features are honored with a special encore screening and statuette, while winning shorts also receive a cash prize.

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is a production of American Jewish Committee's Atlanta Regional Office, an international advocacy organization that works to build bridges of understanding between ethnic, religious and national communities. 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.
