Katherine Crosby, 27, is the community programming manager at Atlanta Jewish Film Festival

As community programming manager, Katherine Crosby handles the guest programming coordination involved in both the annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and the organization’s additional year-round programming.

She also leads the AJFF’s community engagement efforts, seeking to ensure that AJFF is finding appropriate partners for all festival-related and year-round events, while strategically working with diverse partners citywide. Crosby is passionate about connecting different communities through the arts, and consistently strives to find new ways to do so.

From 2014 to 2017, she worked in New York at Creative Artists Agency, a top international talent agency, most recently as an agent trainee in the Alternative Television Department.

Crosby graduated from Harvard University in 2014 with a concentration in psychology, a secondary field in dramatic arts, and a citation in Spanish, before beginning her professional career at CAA.

She grew up in Sandy Springs and attended The Westminster Schools. Crosby and her now-husband returned to Georgia in the fall of 2017 and recently moved to Smyrna.

“I felt instantly reconnected to the Jewish community upon my return to Georgia. Working with AJFF has allowed me to meet so many different individuals within Jewish Atlanta,” Crosby said.

She sings with The Temple choir and is a member of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network’s Professional Development Committee. In her free time, Crosby enjoys traveling, reading, and exploring Atlanta’s rich cultural offerings.

“Our community’s warm, compassionate and understanding spirit has consistently reminded me why I am so proud to call Atlanta home,” she said.
