JFI Next Wave is a community of Gen Z and Millennial film lovers as well as a platform for showcasing emerging and established filmmakers whose work explores modern life and identity through a Jewish lens, often dealing with subjects like, art, music, travel, social justice and more. Our community brings together old and new friends from San Francisco and the entire Bay Area for live events at established movie theatres and exciting alternative venues. Next Wave also offers online content that young adults can stream, watch, and rewatch from all over the US and the world. Enjoy our special Next Wave JFI On Demand playlist, and tune in for livestream events and virtual Q&A’s!
Next Wave members receive all-inclusive Festival passes, attend private VIP receptions and parties with filmmakers, actors, and artists; experience live and online programs and events that step outside the boundaries of film such as live music, comedy, art and, (of course), drink, eat, socialize, and network with other young leaders and fans of the independent arts community.
Next Wave programs are supported by a generous grant from The Koret Foundation.
