We're Bringing You More Inspiring for 2021-2022

Welcome to our new program year, which will include more than 18 year-round, non-Festival events as well as the March 2022 EBIJFF. At this time, we don’t know whether our annual Festival will be a virtual affair that will allow you to “see the world” from the comfort of your home; an in-person, brick-and-mortar event, or a hybrid one that provides a combination of both. Do know that we are planning something special for our 27th anniversary.


Our being able to bring YOU this quality content is due to the generosity of our individual, corporate and organizational donors and our hard-working tech team. If possible, please consider making a donation as ticket sales account for less than 35% of our costs.

Donate here! 

We will be bringing you films and speakers each month, so check out REEL TALK, our weekly e-newsletter, for their dates and times. If you are not already getting it, sign up to stay in touch.


Once again, thank you for joining us as we continue to pivot during these extraordinary and challenging times.  Your enthusiasm for our programming helps us build community through the power of film.
