In Tuesday’s (12/8) Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Howard Pousner writes, “The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a compelling and deep slate of movies and an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert of scores from classic Jewish films. The Symphony Hall concert on Jan. 4, including selections from ‘Schindler’s List,’ ‘Driving Miss Daisy,’ ‘Yentl,’ ‘Life Is Beautiful’ and more, kicks off the film showings Jan. 13-24. Richard Kaufman, longtime music coordinator at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, will conduct the concert, which will be accompanied by a montage of film images projected onto large overhead screens. Forty one narrative films and documentaries and two programs of shorts will then unspool at Regal Cinemas Atlantic Station 16, Lefont Sandy Springs and Regal’s Medlock Crossing Stadium 18.” The festival is Atlanta’s largest film festival and the second-largest Jewish film festival in the U.S.
