Volunteer with Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Here’s a great opportunity to try something new and engage with the Jewish community. The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival (AJFF) is looking for you! The festival couldn’t exist without the huge volunteer contingent that has been instrumental to its growth and success. AJFF is continually onboarding people to serve on various planning and programming committees that support the annual festival and other activities.
The film festival draws close to 40,000 moviegoers to nearly 180 screenings and engaged roughly 400 volunteers this past year alone. “Volunteerism is in the DNA of the Jewish Film Festival,” said Kenny Blank, AJFF’s executive director. “Most people think of us as an annual festival that takes place in February, but we try to get people engaged throughout the year.”
“From prescreening movies and selecting guest speakers, to community outreach and fundraising, there are many ways to get involved,” said Blank. “Whatever time or talent you have to offer, we want to know about it. The needs of this organization can only be filled when we have a cross-section of community participation.”
“Many people assume the festival is such a success, it takes care of itself,” “Not so,” Blank says. “This is something that’s owned by the community. People are really invested in it. But we can’t do it alone. As AJFF’s tagline says, ‘We can only do more of this with more of you.’” Learn more about volunteering with AJFF.
