The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival continues its long tradition in 2016, delivering the best experience for festival goers as the world’s largest Jewish film festival.

Just over 36,000 audience members passed into AJFF theaters at the 2016 festival, enjoying more films and more screenings than ever before offered. The festival has embarked on a multi-year plan to increase access to the festival for audiences of all ages, from every background, and from all across the Atlanta area and beyond.
