Screening in-person & virtually in Atlantic Canada
2021 Atlantic Jewish Film Festival - November 18 -21, 2021: Screening in Atlantic Canada
This year from November 18-21, our 8th annual AJFF presents a hybrid festival.
After last year’s virtual AJFF, which successfully attracted an audience from across Atlantic Canada, we will once again offer virtual cinema in combination with in-person gatherings (as permitted by Nova Scotia Health guidelines) to share our values and culture with each other and the broader community through the enrichment that films provide.
Our user-friendly AJFF Eventive platform will host our virtual cinema screenings in Atlantic Canada from November 18 - 21.
In-person screening are scheduled for:
November 18th, 7PM, Cineplex Cinemas at Park Lane, Halifax.
November 20th, 8PM, Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Bronfman Theatre, screening and reception.

About The AJFF
The Atlantic Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is presented by the Atlantic Jewish Council (AJC). The festival provides an opportunity for the public to experience the Jewish world through film in Halifax. 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 7th Atlantic Jewish Film Festival, the AJFF organizing committee is excited to announce another great year of engaging films highlighting Jewish life and culture around the world.

About the Atlantic Jewish Council
The Atlantic Jewish Council (AJC) has been the cornerstone of Jewish life in the Atlantic Canadian provinces (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, and Newfoundland & Labrador) since 1975, acting as the organized Jewish community’s representative and program/service provider for non-religious matters. With only a small staff complement and a modest budget, the AJC relies on the support of over 100 volunteers across Atlantic Canada to move the needle on our eight strategic priorities:
- Building a sense of Jewish community across Atlantic Canada;
- Strengthening Jewish identity amongst the Jews of Atlantic Canada, especially our youth;
- Reinforcing the regional identity of the Atlantic Canadian Jewish community;
- Supporting and connecting Atlantic Canadians to Israel;
- Educating about the Holocaust and human rights;
- Helping those in need in our community;
- Fostering relationships with and representing the Atlantic Jewish population to all levels of government, academic institutions, and Jewish and general organizations at both the national and local level; and
- Educating the community of Atlantic Canada at large about Judaism.
The AJC is happy to once again present the Atlantic Jewish Film Festival.
