Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival kicks off Thursday

It's officially called the Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival, but it's really more of a caravan, spreading a dozen movies among nearly as many venues on both sides of the bay. Only one theater location — Villagio Cinemas in Carrollwood — is slated for use more than once, so checking dates, times and locations on the festival's website ( is highly recommended. The 18th annual festival begins tonight at Straz Center for the Performing Arts with a 7:30 p.m. screening of Bethlehem ($20 including a reception), and ends March 31 with The Attack at Eckerd College's Miller Auditorium ($8). A brunch March 30 at Maggiano's followed by The Zig Zag Kid at Westshore 16 ($36) is a new wrinkle in the schedule. Passes for access to all 12 festival screenings are $72. For information visit the website or contact Brandy Gold at (813) 769-4725. — Steve Persall
