Why Support EBIJFF?

Since ticket sales account for only 30 – 35% of our annual operating budget, we depend on the generosity of festival-goers like you.

Supporting the EBIJFF represents an investment in the cultural life of the Contra Costa and Tri-Valley regions. In addition to our annual Festival in Pleasant Hill and the International Film Series in Livermore, we present a series of betweens—screenings held throughout the year. These screenings are planned to provide more in-depth education on specific topics as well as to encourage dialogue. For betweens suitable for middle school and up, student admissions are always free.

By becoming an EBIJFF supporter, you enjoy special offers for Festival programs year-round.

If you are curious about different donor levels and benefits, this “Donor Benefits” chart explains it all. For example, your support of our Festival with $350 provides you with 1 all-film, First Entry “Star” pass while $550 provides you with 2 “Star” passes.

Thinking of becoming a donor? Please contact Riva Gambert, EBIJFF Director, at eastbayjewishfilm@hotmail.com or call her at 925.895.3605.
