The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF), already the biggest film event in the city and the world’s second largest Jewish film festival, is expanding screenings by more than 25 percent in 2014, ensuring that more festival-goers have access to the festival’s hottest tickets.

As Atlanta’s largest exhibitor of foreign and independent cinema, AJFF continues to bring influential, touching, and often controversial films to a region that might otherwise never get a chance to see them.  Having drawn nearly 32,000 attendees in 2013, this year’s festival will run January 29-February 20, 2014 and features 65 films (52 features and 13 shorts) from 20 countries.

Beyond hosting screenings, AJFF is also expanding to more venues.  This year, the festival will show films at seven different venues throughout metro Atlanta, and it will host an immersive art experience celebrating iconic Jewish filmmakers at an eighth venue.  The festivities kick off with an Opening Night Gala at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, featuring a screening of the Polish drama Run Boy Run.

We brought you this greatness last year and told you it was an experience. We are letting you know in advance that this is going to be a colossal festival! Last year was so much fun, and with them increasing the number of screenings, they will also increase the amount of enjoyment! And if that’s not enough to get you excited, the entire film list will be unveiled in 2 hours and 54 minutes from now. Or follow the countdown at http://www.ajff.org/

We can’t wait! 😀
