PRESS RELEASE: “Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Signs with Ticket Alternative”
ATLANTA (Ticket Alternative) December 20, 2011 — The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, which is the largest film festival in Atlanta and the second largest Jewish film festival in the country, has chosen Ticket Alternative as their new ticketing partner. Not only will Ticket Alternative be selling all the tickets to the various events making up the festival, but they will also be staffing the event too, making the operations more streamlined and organized than ever.
“Ticket Alternative brings a unique set of talents to the table when it comes to ticketing,” says Ticket Alternative operations manager Ben Neill. “We’re local, have a great call center, can put together an amazing custom website and handle all the box-office ticket needs. In the past, the festival has had to take on extra responsibility with fulfillment, staffing and more, or outsource it to an unrelated company. Now, we can take care of everything under one roof.”
The festival, now entering its 12th year, has grown into a mammoth event for not only the Jewish community of Atlanta, but the film, art, music and cultural communities too. Film lovers of any ethnicity, age or background are bound to find something to their tastes at the three-week long festival, which will take place February 8-29, 2012.
“We love that Ticket Alternative can take care of everything for us, even staffing the event, and that they are still a locally-based boutique ticketing company,” says AJFF Executive Director Kenny Blank. “We’re especially looking forward to the white glove service our sponsors and VIPs will get this year. And having known Ben Neill, who has worked with the festival for years, we have a familiarity and knowledge of the consistently great work Ticket Alternative has done.”
The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival will have over 26,000 audience members view its 60+ films over the 20-day extravaganza. With the ever-expanding line-up and scope of experiences depicted in these films, every year the festival gets the chance to carry out its mission of building bridges of understanding between ethnic, religious and national groups to more and more people.
