Virtual Festival Begins on March 11 on Eventive  

We are delighted to return to brick-and-mortar theaters for six days of Festival enjoyment. However, you can still

watch the films from the comfort of your home or catch up on ones you missed in-theatre. Our 2023 Virtual Festival will allow you to stream all the movies we showed at the Century 16 with the exception of the documentary Only in Theaters. We will also stream three new titles plus six shorts.  

 

All our films will have a five-day streaming window. You can start watching a film anytime during its availability. You can stop your movie and finish later, as you have 72 hours to complete watching your films. Each film’s availability window is listed in our brochure and below.

 

Virtual Festival passes cost $195 and go on sale February 5. Individual virtual tickets cost $12.50 and go on sale 

February 10.

 

Scroll below to see the movies we will present during our 2023 Virtual Festival. Once individual tickets are available for purchasing, you can either click the More Info & Tickets button for that film or directly visit EBIJFF28 Film Guide on Eventive.

 

We are dedicated to making online film viewing as user-friendly as possible. We are here to help you navigate our Virtual Festival. Eventive's Live Chat Support is open from 6 AM through Midnight PST. Wishnev Consulting (The Computer Relationship Therapist) will also provide Virtual festival-goers with a complimentary 15-minute phone consult.
