The 19th annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is underway now! AJFF is the largest film festival in Atlanta, and one of the largest Jewish film festivals in the world. In 2012, Creative Loafing named it Atlanta’s best film fest.
This is a large event, taking place over three weeks (February 6 – 26) and across multiple venues around Atlanta.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, this year’s edition of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival will showcase 76 films (both shorts and feature-length) representing 24 countries. Of those, three are world premieres, six are North American premieres, and two are U.S. premieres.
Unfortunately, neither Groupon nor Goldstar are providing half-price deals or discounts this year. However, the AJFF is competitively priced, with tickets for evening shows just $15.
Your best bet to save a few dollars? Attend a matinee screening — which the AJFF is defining as any show that starts before or up to 4:00 p.m. Those tickets are just $13.
Additionally, the $13 price applies to seniors (age 65 and older), students with a valid student ID card, and children age 12 and under.
WSB-TV is also offering a coupon good for $2 off general admission tickets to a handful of family-friendly films. If you want to take the kids to any of these, listed below, you can use the promo code FAM2FAM to get $2 off at checkout when you’re buying tickets online.
AJFF’s family recommended films for this year’s festival:
- The Frisco Kid
- Shepherd: The Story of a Jewish Dog
- Shooting Life
- Witness Theater
Buying tickets online and receiving them via email is your cheapest option — there is a $2.50 service fee for phone orders.
