Fresno Jewish Film Series 2022-23

We are optimistic about starting our new film season…. we plan and G-d laughs!!!!

We have planned an entertaining season with meals to complement each film. The committee has tried to realistically predict what the pandemic guidelines might look like throughout the 2022-23 season. We have decided that we can show films at TBI during what are predicted to be “safe” months. With guidelines that requires all attendees to be current with Covid vaccinations and masked when appropriate, we hope to protect not only ourselves but our film loving friends. 

The bulk of this season’s films venue will be at Temple Beth Israel. This season, all  of our films shown at TBI will include the option of purchasing a TBIstro meal by making a reservation up to 48 hours in advance of event. On opening night, September 17th, at 6:30 PM, we begin with a TBIstro meal, serving chicken shwarma, followed with the film "Zaytoun" at 8:00 PM. 

Our October event will be a special one and you can BRING THE FAMILY for an evening of fun! There will be a TBIstro meal served in the Sukkah followed with a film, also shown inside the Sukkah. Beginning in October, TBIstro meals are planned to be served at 6:00 PM with films starting at 7:30 PM. 

For December and January, we are suggesting films to watch at your leisure on Kanopy.com followed with a Zoom discussion. We have chosen Kanopy films that are incredibly open to discussion. Please check our website FAQ page on how to set up your Kanopy account. In February, we have listed both an in-person film and a Kanopy selection pending Fresno’s health conditions.  Do consult the flyer, our website and definitely make sure you are on our email list so that we can keep you informed.

We have planned a variety of meals and weather permitting, we will eat outdoors and watch the films indoors. Please make your TBIstro meal reservations by 48 hours before each film. We shop for ingredients based on the number of reservations received and try to be as precise as possible. 

We are looking forward to seeing you and your friends on opening night and throughout the season!
