The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival was first created to inspire our city’s diverse communities to new levels of cultural understanding by showcasing entertaining and thought-provoking Jewish film. Ever since, hundreds and hundreds of films have been showcased, boasting the best cinema creations by Jewish artists.
Down to their core, the films highlighted explore themes of identity, history and culture, which has always been at the forefront of the festival’s mission.
This year, there will be sixty world-class films, narrative and documentary features, as well as two programs dedicated to shorts.
As one of Atlanta’s largest film festival, AJFF made history back in 2015 by becoming the largest Jewish film festival in the entire world, with more than 38,600 moviegoers in attendance.
This year’s highlights include Paris Boutique, which explores the tale of a fish-out-of-water Jewish-French lawyer, and an Israeli hustler that have a mysterious adventure in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Or check out Barren, an unmissable drama which is about an ultra-Orthodox couple who face a devastating trauma in both faith and marriage.
However, there truly is something for everyone with so many options on offer. Some screenings will feature a Q&A session, guest speakers, or both! Ticket prices vary depending on what you wish to experience.
