JBFC Film Club

JBFC Film Club


We are thrilled to announce that IRON HORSE restaurant in Pleasantville is the new, exclusive sponsor of the JBFC Film Club!

One of the most popular programs at the JBFC since its inception in 2001! Subscribers preview the hottest new independent films. A selection of engaging, challenging films are screened—a mix of narratives, foreign films, and documentaries. It consistently sells out every season—learn how to subscribe today! 

The host of the JBFC Film Club, Christopher Funderburg, has exceptionally wide-ranging tastes in film, which embody the spirit of Film Club. “I enjoy literally all kinds of movies,” Christopher says. His favorites include everything from Singin’ in the Rain to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. “Gene Kelly and Barbara Stanwyck are my favorite movie stars, and Luis Buñuel is my favorite director.” 

You may already know Christopher from the many entertaining and comprehensive Reel Talks he gives. Known for leading spirited discussions enhanced by an encyclopedic film knowledge and in-depth research, he works with Programming Director Brian Ackerman to conceptualize the film center's series and select the films we show. He writes about film on thepinksmoke.com, a site he cofounded, and is also a filmmaker.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share film as part of a group of film lovers. Join us for the next season!
