MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is a 23-day cinematic exploration of Jewish life, culture and history. Seeking to use the power of film to both entertain and educate, AJFF challenges conventional perspectives on complex and challenging issues facing both the Jewish and global communities.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival ranks as the second largest Jewish film festival in the world and largest film festival in Atlanta, spanning 23 days and attracting an audience of more than 31,000 filmgoers. AJFF showcases a diverse international collection of narrative and documentary works that broadly explore themes of identity, history and culture, as well as life in the State of Israel. AJFF hosts visiting filmmakers and other panelists, and attracts widespread industry participation and media coverage. Moviegoers cast their ballots for the best narrative and documentary films of the festival, with winners receiving the AJFF Audience Award. Winning features are honored with a special encore screening and statuette, while winning shorts also receive a cash prize. The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and supported by corporate, foundation, government and individual sponsors.
