Next Wave

Join JFI Next Wave

Our Next Wave programs feature stories and perspectives that signal the next evolutionary step in the history of independent filmmaking. With more ways than ever to express yourself through film and media, Next Wave is the home of all JFI content that looks toward the future.

We provide Bay Area Next Wavers with the opportunity to; receive all-inclusive Festival passes (at an incredible discount!), attend private VIP receptions and parties with filmmakers, actors, and artists; experience programs and events that step outside the boundaries of film; enjoy live music, stand-up comedy, or other surprising special events; and, (of course), drink, eat, socialize, and network with other young leaders and fans of the independent arts community.
