Atlantic Jewish Film Festival

 October 19 – 22  2017 | Halifax, NS

4th  ANNUAL 

ATLANTIC JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL (AJFF)

ABOUT

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.

Following the success of last fall’s third annual festival, the AJFF organizing committee is excited to announce another great year of engaging films highlighting Jewish life and culture around the world.

But we depend on you.

By sponsoring or purchasing advertising in the AJFF program you assure our growth and ensure that we continue to share our Jewish world with the larger one.

We invite you to become part of the AJFF family.

Last year our Saturday evening film, “In Search of Israeli Cuisine,” was a whirlwind tour of food and restaurants across Israel. The gala party featured Israeli food – of course! This year we invite you to a “wedding reception” gala party after we screen a German film, “Family Commitments,” where two guys, a Jew and a Muslim, marry. Come celebrate with us.

PREVIEW

Saturday evening film, October 21: Family Commitments (Comedy, Germany, 2015, 85 minutes, with English subtitles) followed by the not-to-be-missed gala “wedding reception”: To get married is easy, but will things still go smoothly when it involves a homophobic Arab father, an overbearing Jewish mother and an unexpected pregnancy? David and Khaled need to set a lot of things straight before they can say their vows and live happily ever after. Click on the photo to view the trailer:
