On behalf of our professional team, board of directors and other volunteer leadership, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival extends very best wishes for the New Year.
We are, of course, most excited to share with you our tentpole event, the 19th edition of the annual film festival, as we look forward to what promises to be another year of enrichment and enlightenment through cinematic storytelling.
The 2019 AJFF shifts to a slightly new time frame, February 6-26, providing more time to select your movies and plan your viewing schedule (while also avoiding any overlap with the Super Bowl hoopla coming to town February 3).
What some of you may not know is that AJFF is now engaged in film screenings and other community activities throughout the calendar year. Each program uniquely caters to the mission of this organization to celebrate the cinematic arts and Jewish culture, and harness the power of film to foster dialogue and understanding amongst diverse audiences.
The new AJFF Connects program, for example, brings together Jewish and non-Jewish audiences of all faiths and backgrounds to explore universal and timely topics onscreen.
Our Icon Award and Cinebash events serve to celebrate exemplary, sometimes unsung luminaries of the movie industry.
College students experience the educational impact of moviemaking through AJFF On Campus, a mini-version of our annual festival, which returns to Emory University in October.
And our AJFF Selects series features more of what you love about the annual festival: outstanding new works of international and independent film.
In this season of reflection and renewal, we recognize that it is our audiences, donors, volunteers and community partners whose enthusiastic and generous support make our New Year – and our whole year – truly sweet.
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year, and at the movies!
