We Are Excited!

A lot will be happening in the next few months. From The Foodie Film Fest to our first ever Virtual Festival, we are looking forward to all these events with you by our side.   

Below are a few of the events that the EBIJFF is sponsoring together with other organizations in the East Bay, and sometimes outside of it. Currently, all our programming is online. For the listing of all our events, check our "All Upcoming Events" page. If you are looking to sign up for a movie, go to "Events" and then click on "Online Film Screenings" and register. In April when we will present our "Virtual Festival," you will find all the information you need such as the festival line-up, film guide, trailers, schedule, tickets and passes here. 

Foodie Film Fest 

January 19 - February 15

Start with 4 celebrated chefs and then stir in 4 food-focused movies, each of which plays for 6 days. The result is an exciting mix of cooking demos, personal culinary journeys and online film screenings!

Sign up for one or for all! 

We will be frequently updating our list of "2020-2021 EBIJFF Supporters" whose generosity enables us to bring you the festival and all the related programs.
