Atlantic Jewish Film Festival

 November 16-20 2016




The Atlantic Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is presented by the Atlantic Jewish Council, a registered non-profit society with charitable status, but it is largely volunteer-driven. The festival provides a singular opportunity for the public to experience the Jewish world. We offer film lovers documentaries, comedies and dramas that otherwise would not screen in Nova Scotia. We choose films to engage, entertain and educate a diverse, inclusive audience.
