In sheer quality and number, this has got to be the best film festival in Athens every year. The films are carefully selected from all over the world by a local committee and shown practically non-stop for five days, including the opening film at the gala in the Georgia Museum of Art on Saturday. The films generally have a Jewish angle, though their themes are universal, and their genres are varied among drama, comedy, suspense, documentaries and shorts—you can hardly go wrong with a single one of them. Head immediately to athensjff.org and plan your festival! Buy a pass for all 12 films and the shorts, or pay at the box office as you go.
Various times · $7.50–9.75 ($45 pass/$15 student) · athensjff.org
