Volunteer

Our volunteers are an essential piece of Festival success. As a volunteer, you will meet wonderful people and, of course, see great films! Whether you're a Festival newbie or a seasoned volunteer, anyone over the age of 16 years-old can join the team. From students to retirees, the only requirement we have for our Festival and year-round volunteers is a love for exceptional films!

SFJFF37 Volunteer Shifts Will be Announced Soon!

What do Jewish Film Institute Volunteers do?

Volunteers are needed during the Festival and throughout the year to help with events, ushering, press check-in, ticket taking, and much more. We rely on the help and generosity of nearly 100 volunteers every year to make JFI's programs welcoming experiences for all.

Volunteer benefits include:

  • Vouchers for SFJFF and other Jewish Film Institute screenings and events
  • Exclusive SFJFF T-shirt
  • Admittance to the volunteer appreciation party
