Thanks to You, Bold, Inspiring & Amazing Films Are Coming Your Way in 2023-2024!

Welcome to the Independent Jewish World Cinema (IJWC), the parent non-profit of the East Bay International Jewish Film Festival. Due to the continued generosity of our donors, we were able to present monthly Year-Round events during the past year as well as a highly rated 2023 Film Festival that featured some of the best films in our history. Now, as we enter our 2023-2024 program year, we are again looking forward to a robust line-up of monthly movies, including several Around the World with Fred programs, that will be held both in-person and virtually. The 29th Annual EBIJFF will run February 24 through February 29, with showings in-theatre at the Century 16 in Pleasant Hill. Our virtual Festival will take place in early March followed by several films at the Vine Cinema in Livermore. 


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, please feel free to recommend films and speakers:, Thank you for building community with amazing film at a time.
