Tickets for the 2017 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival go on sale Wednesday, Jan. 18, six days before opening night, although sponsors and patrons get to reserve seats in advance.

The standard ticket price is $13; that applies for general admission to regular screenings that start after 4 p.m. Tickets to earlier shows are $10.

Children 12 and younger, students with valid IDs, and people 65 and older can get $11 tickets to evening shows.

Tickets for opening night are $18, plus a $3 Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre fee. That ticket does not get you into the pre-film gala, which is open only to festival sponsors and patrons.

Tickets to closing night (including a post-movie dessert reception) and young professionals night (with a pre-film party) also are $18.

The best way to purchase tickets is through the festival website, ajff.org. You also can call the festival box office at 678-701-6104, but you’ll have to pay a $2.50 fee for each ticket order.

For those films that don’t sell out well in advance, you can buy tickets at the venues one their festival days, starting one hour before the first show and ending 30 minutes after the day’s last film begins.
