At 36,000 attendees strong, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a showcase of international cinema that broadly explores themes of identity, history and culture. The annual festival was founded in 2000 by the Atlanta Regional Office of American Jewish Committee (AJC). Through film the festival seeks to illuminate the Jewish community and encourage ties to Atlanta’s diverse cultural, ethnic and religious communities.
The 2018 festival brings over 70 extraordinary films at 7 venues around Atlanta including:
BOMBSHELL: the Hedy Lamarr Story. Lamarr was a gifted engineer and inventor but could only get noticed for her beauty.
Gilbert. The quiet side of the loudest guy in show biz.
Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me. An inside look at the private life of the iconic entertainer.
The Mighty Atom (Film Threat Review). Joseph Greenstein was a small man who became renowned for his physical strength.
Just a few of the notable films in an amazing schedule that also features appearances by filmmakers, interactive art, and food.
