Livestreamed events will be available to either join via Zoom, or watch in the Digital Screening Room. Patrons will recieve links to the JFI Screening Room the week of the event, where they will be able to log in and view all registered and purchased screenings.
To join an event via Zoom, a link will be sent to the RSVP'd email address the week of the event. All participants will be on mute, with the ability to interact via the text chat options. These events will be simulcast to the JFI Screening Room and uploaded for later viewing.
Please ensure that you download the latest Zoom client and have tested your computer video and audio prior to any events.

HDMI Cable – Using a special cable available at many stores, you can connect your computer or mobile device to your television.
With the shift to online, the Jewish Film Institute has had to create new digital agreements with filmmakers and distributors, and those agreements included limiting online streaming access to California for several film titles. This is called geo-blocking. Streaming is geo-blocked to California, so you will need to be within the state to stream those films.
