The Austin Jewish Film Festival
Lights! Camera! Chutzpah: A 24 Hr. Jewish Teen Workshop: DATE CHANGE October 8-9 LEARN MORE. REGISTER.
The Austin Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) attracts a following from the Austin community, both Jewish and non-Jewish. Many films that are screened at the AJFF would not find distribution elsewhere, as the festival brings the best new Jewish films to our community each year. Throughout the year, the film festival committee gathers regularly to view hundreds of films in order to select the best ones for the annual festival. The committee pays special attention to films that will engage the community, those that might have a local connection, those worthy of outside speakers or panel discussions, and those whose directors or actors can speak at an event in person or through Skype. These kinds of events mark the difference between a film festival and simply a film series.
The AJFF holds its annual festival at two locations: the Arbor Cinema and Georgetown’s City Lights Theatre. The week-long festival includes approximately 25 films and shorts. The AJFF also presents quarterly events to the community throughout the year.
