The annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival begins this evening. For the next few weeks, Atlanta residents can catch screenings of more than 50 feature and short films at different theaters around the metro area.

City Lights host Lois Reitzes sat down with Matthew Bernstein, who is chair of the film studies program at Emory University and an advisor for the festival, to get a sense of what it’s all about.
