San Francisco Jewish Film Festival

What if you accidentally discovered a supposedly lost body of animation work? What sort of Kaddish can be given for notorious financial fraudster Bernie Madoff? What political activism can you perform when you develop ALS? The answers to these questions can be found in some of the films offered in this year's San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (hereafter "SFJFF").

In another sign of the Bay Area's cultural re-opening, the SFJFF returns with its 41st edition. Running from July 22 to August 1, 2021, this annual festival of films from the Jewish diaspora offers a mix of in-theater screenings (the Castro on July 24 & 25) and online streaming for the festival's duration. Some SFJFF selections are available nationwide. However, the majority of SFJFF 41's films will have streams geoblocked to California or even just the San Francisco Bay Area, as per digital agreements with individual filmmakers and distributors.

~~~~~~~~

The first and largest Jewish Film Festival in the world returns! The festival takes place every year at venues in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland and Palo Alto, and San Rafael.

The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (SFJFF) is the first and most revered film festival of its kind in the world, attracting more than 35,000 filmgoers annually and offering over 120 screenings and events throughout the Bay Area over three weeks. Esteemed as a leader in film curation and presentation, SFJFF is also a much anticipated, annual community celebration that brings to the stage stimulating and insightful panels about Jewish history, culture, and identity, with dozens of guest directors, actors, and industry professionals, and rousing parties and special events.

The Jewish Film Institute, presenter of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival, is the premier curatorial voice for Jewish film and media internationally and a leading arts organization in the Bay Area. JFI introduces audiences to new voices, ground-breaking stories, and thought-provoking content, inspiring communities to expand their understanding of Jewish life through film, media, and dialogue.
