2022 - 2023 IJWC Year-round Subscription
On Sale Now


Thank you for supporting the Independent Jewish World Cinema (IJWC). During this challenging past year, the generosity of our donors was an essential reason why tens of thousands of people enjoyed our Year-Round events and our 2022 virtual EBIJFF.


For February 25 through March 2, 2023, we are planning a robust Film Festival at the Century 16 in Pleasant Hill as well as a virtual Festival one week later that will stream the same films (and perhaps a few more titles). Films will also screen at the Vine Cinema in Livermore. All of these screenings will bring inspiring programming and Jewish culture to our community and continue to serve as a cultural “lifeline” while social-distancing is still maintained by many in our region.


From November 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023, our exciting Year-Round, virtual programming will include both films and speaker events, including one of our most popular programs, Around the World with Fred. Our Year-Round Film Subscription will provide “one-stop” ticket purchasing at substantial savings. For details and to purchase the subscription, click here or button below.

As in prior years, we also hope that you will become a supporter of our signature event, the 28th Annual East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. We are very heartened by the breadth and depth of the films that are now available to us. Those donating at the $1,000 level or higher will automatically receive the Year-Round Film Subscription at no additional cost. To make a donation, click on Support 2023 EBIJFF. If you have questions, email

 director@eastbayjewishfilm.org or call us at 925.895.3605


Your generosity will ensure that our Film Festival remains a vital part of the region's cultural landscape and our Year-Round events continue to provide in-depth knowledge about the vibrancy of the Jewish people, their history and society.
