JxJ FILM CLUB

We’re hosting a weekly live conversation through the JxJ Film Club. Each week, we’ll pick one of the titles offered on our Virtual Cinema platform and host a live discussion about it at the end of the run. No need to be a film expert, just be a film enthusiast!

On Thursdays, we’ll announce the week’s “assignment,” selecting one title from our Virtual Cinema. You’ll have until the following Wednesday at 5:00 PM to buy your ticket, watch the film, and RSVP to receive a link to join the video discussion. On Wednesday at 7:00 PM, we’ll host a virtual group discussion lead by our Artistic and Managing Director, Ilya Tovbis.
