"Betweens" could also be called "year-rounds," as these screenings take place before and after each of our film festivals. Below are the films we have shown in 2019 and will in 2020. They are sponsored by both the EBIJFF and the Contra Costa JCC in partnership with local synagogues and organizations. To find out more about these screenings, sign up for "Reel Talk," and have news of future "Betweens" sent to your inbox.
