In 2023, the cinematic landscape proved to be both unpredictable and thrilling, with JBFC proudly boasting a remarkable tally of 38 Oscar nominations for films featured in our lineup! Notable moments included our successful summer run of “Barb-enheimer”, our special screening of Alexander Payne’s The Holdovers with Payne in-person for a post-screening Q&A, and our sold-out preview screening in September of Killers of the Flower Moon followed by a post-screening Q&A with Oscar-nominated Costume Designer Jacqueline West, to name a few. In November, we hosted a retrospective of second-time Oscar nominee, Maite Alberdi’s works including a special Q&A and reception after a screening of The Eternal Memory which is nominated for Best Documentary Feature Film this year. Throughout the year, our selection showcased a diverse range of nominees, including all ten Best Picture nominees, with several having come back for re-runs.
