About International Film Showcase:

The International Film Showcase was the brainchild of Efi Lubliner in 2010. He convinced Jo Alice Canterbury and Kate Wiley to help him launch the idea of showing a foreign feature not available in local cinemas or on Netflix for one week a month to the managers of the Orinda Theatre. In January 2011, MAX MANUS (a Norweigan World War II epic) jump started our project and we have been screening first rate foreign features ever since. Each has won international film awards and several have been shortlisted for Golden Globes and Oscars.
