With the increase in TV and film production around town, we’re lucky to have some amazing movie events throughout the year. One such offering is the annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival happening in February!
Details: AJFF - 2/8-29. $9+ per film/event.
There are more than 70 films being screened next month at great theaters all over Atlanta. Foreign, Indie and even classic movies that you haven’t seen on the big screen in decades!
Some picks from me include Opening Night at The Fox on Weds 2/8! See My Best Enemy, a fun art caper film set in WWII for just $10! If you want to rock out the red carpet experience - go VIP for $300 and enjoy the movie AND the Opening Night reception, which features tastings from top ATL chefs such as Craig Richards from Ecco and Kevin Rathbun!
Another fun option is taking a long lunch on Friday 2/10 at 12:15pm to see The Apple Pushers at Atlantic Station and getting delish eats from local food trucks outside the theater! The film is the story of a movement to bring fresh produce and healthy food to the inner city, battling obesity in a cheap fast food world.
Or hit the Young Professionals Night on Thurs 2/9 at Atlantic Station, with food/apps at Strip and then a screening of Rabies after. Only $20! Rabies is fresh off the festival circuit and getting amazing buzz for being the first horror film from Israel, but also for not following the typical plot of this genre. Lots of twists and turns in this one!
There’s lot to see and experience at the Atlanta Jewish Film Fest, so take a look at their extensive schedule, grab some friends and enjoy some amazing entertainment here in Atlanta!
