ATLANTA—The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival opens Wednesday, Jan. 28, for 23 days of films and a celebration of the arts.
The 15th annual festival showcases 65 films from 26 countries, from Sweden to Uruguay, across a diversity of genres, from romance to adventure.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival began in 2000 by the Atlanta Regional Office of the American Jewish Committee. The curtain comes down on the festival Thursday, Feb. 19.
Screenings will be hosted at seven venues, including the new Regal Cinemas Avalon 12 location. The opening night gala returns to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Attendees will “paint the town red” while enjoying food tastings by local and Israeli celebrity chefs, and live entertainment. The festival concludes at the Woodruff Arts Center for the final night of the festival.
AJFF is partnering with Creative Loafing to host a Young Professionals Art Party on Feb. 7 at The Mammal Gallery. The event celebrates Jewish comedy stars from the past and this year will feature art from some of Atlanta’s most interesting creators: Catlanta, Blockhead ATL, Clunky Robot, and Crazy Monkey Trucker.
