Atlanta Jewish FIlm Festival prepares to let more tickets go!

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 9:48 AM

Within hours of opening ticket sales to the public for the 2013 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival on January 3, reports started flooding in that the Web site was down.

The timeline from the festival's official Facebook page tell the story:

Over 13,000 tickets were sold in the first day.

To put this in perspective, this dwarfs the entire paid attendance of other film festival events in Atlanta.

As of this post, the venerable festival reports selling over 24,000 tickets. They are maintaining a running tally of sold out shows - now over 48 (See the complete list after the jump) - on Facebook.

At its current pace, the AJFF will come within striking distance of besting the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival - which claims to be "still the largest, with some 30,000 attendees" Jewish Film Festival in the world.

The good news for everyone here is this: on Thursday, January 13, the festival will be releasing blocks of tickets to a lot of the heretofore sold out shows. These are unclaimed sponsor tickets and the like.

It'll be a do-over of January 3 - the demand will likely crash the servers again, and these tickets are expected to be scooped up as quickly as the original batch. (It might be worth eating the service fee to order using the phone number: the box office line is 866-214-2072)

Consider yourselves warned.
