AJFF In Conversation is all about discussion and dialogue about, what else, Jewish film. When we're not watching great movies, we're talking about them, how they make us feel, what they prompt us to think, and which ones we love the most. These programs are a way to bring the community together in that discussion, and hopefully expand our knowledge and appreciation for the world of cinema. AJFF In Conversation programs include:

Superhero mythology is deeply rooted in Jewish culture. After all, it was Jewish artists who built the comic book industry and influenced the superhero movie blockbusters of today. We'll consider how some of our most cherished superheroes came to be, and how actors like Gal Gadot and Paul Rudd portrayed and embodied these characters on the big screen.
