Exploring our world is a founding principle of the JBFC. Presenting the best of world cinema is part of our mission and remains a vital component of our film programming. On average, the JBFC presents 2-4 foreign films each month.
A JBFC member described how meaningful our world cinema programs are, “I appreciate the diversity of cultures and viewpoints I experience at the JBFC. I also love the films with spectacular scenery of countries I have not been able to visit and voices I have not been able to hear.”
We created the JBFC Passport to recognize every time you attend a world cinema screening. Your membership account will log your adventures. Watch your own personal world map come to life with color as you fly around the world with film.
Level up your “frequent flyer” status with every cinematic journey you take. After you’ve visited your first three countries (outside the US), you’ll get a souvenir prize in the mail.
Ready to take flight? Come along with the JBFC for a silver screen staycation. No need to set it up or opt in— your travels will automatically be tracked.
To see your personalized map with the countries you have visited, log in to your account with your email and password, and click on “Membership Info.”
