Tickets for the 2018 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival go on sale at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17, seven days before opening night, although sponsors and patrons get to reserve seats in advance.
The standard ticket price, for general admission to regular screenings on weekends and after 4 p.m. on weekdays, is $15, up from $13 last year. Tickets to matinees Monday through Friday are $12.
Children 12 and younger, students with valid IDs, and people 65 and older can get $13 tickets to evening shows.
Tickets for opening night, not including the pre-screening gala open only to festival sponsors and patrons, are $36. Tickets to closing night, including a dessert reception, also are $36. Both nights are at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, which charges an additional $3 fee per ticket.
Tickets to the young professionals night (with a pre-film party) at the Woodruff Arts Center also are $36.
The AJFF is using a new online ticketing system, Elevent. You have to register with the system at ajff.org/register. Once you’re signed up, you can create a wish list of all the screenings you want to attend, and as soon as sales start Jan. 17, you can log in at ajff.org, move those tickets to your virtual shopping cart, and check out quickly and easily.
You can save a credit card with your Elevent account so you don’t have to keep re-entering the information.
The Elevent system saves your order history, so you can reprint tickets if necessary.
Tickets can be purchased by phone at 678-228-8872, but you’ll have to pay a $2.50 fee for each order.
Tickets are available at the theaters on the days they’re serving as festival venues, starting one hour before the first show and ending 30 minutes after the day’s last film begins.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival has shaken up its lineup of locations this year. Closing night is moving from the Woodruff Arts Center’s Symphony Hall to the opening night venue, the Cobb Energy Centre. The Regal Hollywood Stadium 24 off Interstate 85 in Chamblee has been added, and, because of renovations, Georgia Theatre Co.’s Merchant Walk Cinemas in East Cobb northeast of Atlanta has been removed. The Woodruff Arts Center’s Rich Auditorium is being used only for the ACCESS young professionals night; last year it also held regular screenings. And after its sale, Lefont Sandy Springs is now the Springs Cinema & Taphouse.
