After relying on virtual viewings during COVID and the ensuing quarantine, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival in 2023 returned to theaters, holding engagements at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center and four other venues.

In an interview with the AJT in January, AJFF artistic director and executive director Kenny Blank said, “First and foremost, we do want to return back to the original magic by being back in theaters. We’re really putting the priority on that in-theater experience. There is no replacement for watching these films on the big screen the way they were intended to be seen. We want to give our audience an important opportunity to dialog around those films, with other festival goers, and also with the film artists that we’ll be welcoming right there in the theater with them.”

And the 2024 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is right around the corner, as it will run from Feb. 13 to Feb. 26, with select titles available to stream Feb. 27 to March 27.

This year, the festival showings will be held at the following locations: Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, Tara Theatre, The Historic Plaza Theatre, Georgia Theatre Company Merchants Walk, and Springs Cinema & Taphouse.

Early access ticket packages are available through Jan. 5, 2024. Member pre-sales begin Jan. 17, 2024. Reserved seating selection commences Jan. 29, 2024.; and tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 31, 2024.

The AJT is a presenting sponsor of the 2024 AJFF. Full details of this year’s festival can be found at www.ajff.org.
