Zelony Joins Film Fest

AJFF finds new development director to lead festival's endeavors.

The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival has found its replacement for Lesli Greenberg, who left as development director just after opening night in January to become the chief development officer at Jewish Family & Career Services.

Lori Zelony, the longtime director of development programs and special events at the Davis Academy, has made the move from Sandy Springs to Midtown to lead fundraising efforts for the festival.

“Serving as the development director for AJFF allows me to continue the conversation and talk about something I believe in,” Zelony, the mother of former AJT intern and occasional contributor Sophie Zelony, said in an article the festival posted on its website March 7. “I like to think that those who choose to support the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival are not only supporting and investing in themselves and their families, but they are also investing in the festival for their friends, families and those they may not even know.”

She moved to the Atlanta area in the mid-1990s to work with the Atlanta Olympic Committee.

People interested in donating to or sponsoring the festival or joining the AJFF Fundraising and Development Committee can reach Zelony at lori@ajff.org or 404-630-1280.
