The newly established JFI Completion Grants Program provides the final funding needed to complete a film to emerging and established filmmakers for original stories that promote thoughtful consideration of Jewish history, life, culture, and identity. Raise a toast to the closing night of Cinegogue Summer Days where we celebrate award winning films and share the future of Jewish film through our Completion Grants program! In this online broadcast, the Jewish Film Institute will announce the recipients of the program’s inaugural round of funding, as well as the winners of the Short Documentary Award and Film Movement Award. JFI will present grants and awards to the recipients with clips from their works. The recipient of SFJFF's Best Short Documentary Award is eligible for consideration in the Documentary Short Subject category of the Academy Awards®. The SFJFF Film Movement Award, co-presented with the distributor Film Movement, receives the option of a non-exclusive, DVD and streaming distribution deal with Film Movement.
