The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival takes place in the winter. However, recently, the festival has been extending its footprint, adding special events throughout the year.
A three-day festival begins this Sunday, when Emory University will host the AJFF On Campus. Matthew Bernstein, professor of Film and Media Studies joined Lois Reitzes to discuss the various selections.
“We talk to Emory faculty and we select films that fit in with the courses that they’re teaching this semester. This is also open to the community and people who maybe have missed these films when they were original shown in the main festival, can come back and see them,” said Bernstein.
