The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a 12-day cinematic examination of Jewish life, culture and history. The 2009 edition will take place from January 14-25, 2009. AJFF seeks to use the power of film and video to both entertain and educate, while challenging conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing the Jewish and world community alike.
Founded in 2000, AJFF is now the largest film festival in Atlanta, Ga., attracting an audience of 15,000 and showcasing some 50 international works that examine various aspects of Jewish life. Moviegoers cast their ballots for the Best Narrative and Best Documentary film of the Festival, with winners receiving the AJFF Audience Award. Screenings are supplemented with guest appearances by filmmakers, actors, authors, academics and other expert panelists.
