Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival

Hey film geeks, can we get an oy vey! In February, The Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival brought to Tampa Theatre (and other local screens) films that were thought-provoking, funny and international in scope. Offerings included The Matchmaker, nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards, and director Evgeny Afineevsky introduced the screening of Oy Vey! My Son is Gay! starring Lainie Kazan and Carmen Electra. Hasidic reggae musician Matisyahu appeared at a screening of Gut Shabbes Vietnam, and discussion forums on caring for people with special needs corresponded with the touching film Anita.
