JFI is a hub for filmmakers exploring and expanding thoughtful consideration of Jewish history, life, culture and identity. We support projects at all stages from development and production through finishing and exhibition.
Established and emerging filmmakers are invited to apply to our year-long Residency, annual exhibitions, and completion grant funding.
JFI is an official partner of the Sundance Film Festival and our San Francisco Jewish Film Festival is an Academy-Award® qualifying festival in the Documentary Short Subject category. For information about JFI offerings for students (14-22 years old), click here.
