The seasons are changing. And with the arrival of fall comes the most exciting and consequential time of year in the cinema industry: the major fall film festivals and the unofficial kickoff to awards season. For film critics, it’s a paradise of prestige movie releases and buzzy speculation as to which titles will go on to claim Oscar gold and a slot at next year’s Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. There’s one person who has an insider perspective as both a critic and a programmer: our 2021 AJFF Film Evaluation Committee Co-Chair, Jason Evans, who’s also a longtime film critic/journalist. In our latest edition of the podcast, hosts Sara and Brad chat with Jason for a peek inside the selection process for the 21st edition of AJFF, as well as the larger landscape of film exhibition, festivals, and other aspects of the industry that may surprise you, especially in this most unusual year.
