Joining me this week are Kenny Blank, Executive Director of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival and Shellie Schmals, AJFF's Program Manager. We explore the special challenges faced by Jewish and other niche festivals, the adventurous side of the Festival's programming tastes, and why filmmakers with "non-Jewish" films should care about events like AJFF.
