As our 11th season begins, the International Film Showcase has decided to go dark until our commercial venues (Orinda Theatre, El Campanil in Antioch, and the Jarvis Conservatory in Napa) reopen. Our distributors are holding back their top films; the ones they are willing to show virtually no longer meet Showcase standards.

Pre-pandemic, we had selected 4 or 5 films to start off 2020 which we will pursue when we know when our theatres will reopen.

In the meantime, our website: www.internationalshowcase.org lists (with posters) all of our films over the past 10 years. We have listed our Top Ten which was neither easy nor uniform!

Efi Lubliner’s List:

  • Red Like the Sky, not available
  • Tangerines, Prime
  • Mountain Cry, not available
  • Woman at War, Prime
  • The Insult, Cohen Media Channel*
  • The Guilty, Prime
  • A Man Called Ove, Prime
  • Pain and Glory, Starz*
  • As It Is in Heaven, Amazon
  • Never Look Away, Starz*

Jo Alice Canterbury’s List:

  • Never Look Away, Starz*
  • Frantz, Prime
  • A Royal Affair, Magnolia Selects*
  • The Hunt, Prime
  • Max Manus, Prime
  • Head Hunters, Magnolia Selects*
  • Brand new Testament, Prime
  • In the Fade, Prime
  • Loose Cannons, not available
  • Marshland, Prime

* with Prime Video Channels

While we await theater re-openings, look for films you may have missed and/or take a second look at ones you enjoyed. A good number of our films are not available on any channel service. If you weren’t able to see these films at a film festival, the Showcase was the only option to see them

Thank you for your loyal support. We’ll be back!
