Introducing AJFF365

In 2020 see more of the AJFF movies you love as part of AJFF 365, the new name for our Monthly Film Series in partnership with Shalom Austin. Most films will be shown at Shalom Austin on the first Sunday of each month at 7 PM and require the purchase of a ticket or possession of an AJFF 365 Pass. However, some events may start at other times or may be at other venues, and a few will even be free for everyone! Be sure to check the details for each event.
An AJFF 365 Pass is the best way to experience our events – no reservations to make, no tickets to buy (usually $12 each) – just show up! This gets you into all monthly film events for the next 12 months without needing to buy another ticket. It also includes 2 guest tickets per annum as well as a discount for purchasing additional guest tickets. Access to the annual Austin Jewish Film Festival is NOT included with this Pass. Special introductory pricing will end on February 17th – sign up now to save $21!

Upcoming Monthly Film Series are on hold!
