Opening Night Gala & Opening Night Film
Tickets & Information
The 2018 Athens Jewish Film Festival will grow to a 5-day event to celebrate our Tenth Anniversary. And, our Opening Night Gala returns to the Georgia Museum of Art on March 24, 2018 for an exceptional dinner fare with adult light beverages, sponsored in part by Mama’s Boy.
After the Gala, we’ll be screening our opening night film, “The Women’s Balcony,” (“Joyous!” — Elissa Simon, Variety).
Your Opening Night Gala Tickets cover the entire evening’s events.
The Festival Pass now allows patrons to attend our Opening Night Film following our Gala, in addition to viewing all Athens Ciné screenings of feature films & the Shorts Competition winners, March 25-28, 2018.
Your Pass will also include the Closing Night Film @ Ciné and the Party @ Indigo. Substantial savings on all 9 films when you buy Festival Passes!
Like to party, but not buying a Festival Pass? We have you covered — individual tickets for the Closing Night Party will also be available.
