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
  • Volunteer appreciation party
