About The AJFF

Dear Film lovers:

The 2018 Atlantic Jewish Film Festival follows last year’s smash success with another exciting weekend of Jewish-themed films from around the world.

Dramas, documentaries, and comedies have been carefully selected; the Gala Party has been planned for weeks; theatres are booked; volunteers at the ready. We are excited about sharing our film choices with you – please say hello and let us know what you think.


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 fourth annual festival, the AJFF organizing committee is excited to announce another great year of engaging films highlighting Jewish life and culture around the world.

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.

Thank you for your support and belief in the AJFF.

About the Atlantic Jewish Council

The Atlantic Jewish Council (AJC) has been the cornerstone of Jewish life in the Atlantic provinces since 1975.

Working with national Jewish agencies, the AJC presents a strong voice for Israel and the Canadian Jewish community. It represents the Atlantic Jewish population to all levels of government and to a large number of Jewish and non-Jewish organizations.

The AJC is also a defence against antisemitism: interfaith dialogue, multicultural and inspirational programming, and topical films are just a few of the tools the AJC uses to educate the public and to mediate discrimination.

The AJC is happy to once again present the Atlantic Jewish Film Festival.
