The Jewish Film Institute is seeking interns with a passion in film, event planning, arts & culture, community building, and nonprofit arts management to assist in the fields of database management, fundraising, event planning, and communications for the 38th annual San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (July 19 – August 5, 2018).
LOCATION: San Francisco Bay Area, California
POSITION TIMEFRAME: May 1 – August 7, 2018 (Dates are flexible depending on candidate’s availability). This is an unpaid internship but we can offer units of academic credit.
The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (SFJFF), presented by the Jewish Film Institute, is the largest and longest-running festival of its kind and a leader in the curation and presentation of new film and media exploring the complexities of Jewish life around the world. Presenting more than 65 films and 135 individual screenings, performances and events in five Bay Area cities (San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Rafael, Oakland, Berkeley), SFJFF attracts more than 40,000 filmgoers and industry professionals to its 18-day program.
The Jewish Film Institute (JFI) is the premier curatorial voice for Jewish film and media and a leading arts and culture organization in the Bay Area. Built on the foundation of the world-renowned San Francisco Jewish Film Festival - the world's first and largest Jewish film festival - the Jewish Film Institute catalyzes and inspires communities in San Francisco and around the world to expand their understanding of Jewish life and culture through film, media, and dialogue. In addition to its signature summer Festival, the Jewish Film Institute presents year-round live events in the San Francisco Bay Area and a host of online content initiatives, including JFI On Demand, the pay-per-view streaming service that makes a portion of films from its archive available to watch online.
Interns interested in database management, member relations, outreach and communications, or grants research and writing, are encouraged to apply, but will also work across disciplines, also gaining experience in festival operations, production, and marketing. JFI & SFJFF internships are wonderful positions for both those with prior experience in the field of film, event planning, communications, media, and as well as those seeking to gain new experience.
