AJFF returns for its 19th year from Wednesday, February 6 through Tuesday, February 26, 2019. Featuring a diverse collection of accomplished international and independent cinema, next year’s festival takes place across 21 days at six metro Atlanta locations, including a new anchor venue at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center at City Springs. The full film lineup and official schedule will be announced on Thursday, January 10, 2019 and tickets will go on sale via AJFF.org beginning Monday, January 28, 2019.
Returning to Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre for Opening Night, the 2019 AJFF continues with screenings at Regal Atlantic Station, Regal Perimeter Pointe, UA Tara Cinemas, and Woodruff Arts Center. Closing Night festivities will be held at the 1,000+ seat Byers Theatre at City Springs.
This year's schedule represents a shift in timeframe, avoiding overlap when Atlanta hosts the Super Bowl LIII on February 3, while also affording our audiences additional time to review the festival lineup and make their film selections. In addition, the vast seating capacity of the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center allows AJFF to consolidate from 23 days to 3 weeks, creating a more compact festival without a reduction in program offerings.
The 14-acre, $229 million City Springs development provides a hub for an enhanced film festival experience, including an abundance of dining options, ample parking, and other amenities, as well as the luxuriously appointed, state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center.
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival extends our sincere gratitude to all our theater partners, and as always to you for your patronage.
