AJFF In Conversation

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:
