See a Film.

See the World.

Hear New Voices.

Thanks to You, More Amazing and Inspiring Set for 2022-2023!

Welcome to the Independent Jewish World Cinema (IJWC), the parent non-profit of the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. Your response to our Year-Round events and Film Festival programming has been very heart-warming. Thanks to your positive feedback, we are looking forward to a robust, hybrid Festival starting on February 25, with showings in-theatre and online. In addition, we continue to present an exciting (and diverse) line-up of Year-Round events, including the Around the World with Fred series and film-related lectures. Our monthly (and sometimes two times a month) film and lecture programs will expand your understanding and appreciation of cinema.

Our ability to bring YOU quality content is due to the generosity of our individual, corporate and organizational donors. If possible, please consider making a donation as ticket sales account for less than 35% of the actual cost of our programs. 

As always, thank you for building community with amazing film at a time.
