Atlanta Jewish Film Festival
Date: 14.01.2009 - 25.01.2009
Country: United States
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a 12-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. AJFF attracts an audience of 15,000 moviegoers, and features an international collection of some 50 narrative and documentary films (in both feature and short form) that connect with 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 film of the festival, with winners receiving the AJFF Audience Award. Winning films are honored with a special encore showing, and the director presented with an original handcrafted AJFF Audience Award statuette.
