The 2016 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) returns with yet another year of some of the best new films! The world’s largest Jewish film festival will take place over the course of 23 days at eight different venues on January 26th through February 17th. Now in its 16th year, AJFF continues to screen movies that not only entertain, but also provide opportunities for reflection, discussion, and gaining a deeper understanding of our complex and diverse world.
This year’s festival will consist of 53 full-length films and 24 short films at a host of locations across the metro Atlanta area:
- Cobb Energy Centre
- Regal Avalon
- GTC Merchants Walk
- Regal Atlantic Station
- Lefont Sandy Springs
- UA Tara Cinemas
- Woodruff Arts Center, Symphony Hall
AJFF continues to discover amazing movies that engage and entertain in new ways, and this year starts with the must-see Opening Night film, director Atom Egoyan’s Remember, a potent revenge thriller starring Oscar-winners Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau. More twists and turns await in the murder mysteries A Grain of Truth and Fire Birds, while laughs await in the coming-of-age comedy Time to Say Goodbye and the subversive satire Atomic Falafel.
The list of films only becomes more diverse with the inclusion of biographies, art house fare, topical films that tackle tough political topics, and so much more! To see a full list of the films, visit ajff.org/films.
