Charlotte Jewish Film Festival

When: Feb. 22-March 9 2014

In its 10th year, the Charlotte Jewish Film Festival is set to screen a diverse mix of kosher films over the course of 15 days. The fest kicks off with a celebration and screening of Hunting Elephants, a hilarious heist flick about a 12-year-old boy and his gang of senior citizens who plan to overthrow a bank. During the opening ceremony there will be light hors d’oeuvres and a dessert reception. Some of the other flicks on the week-long roster include When Jews Were Funny, a documentary covering Jews who contributed to the comedy front; Bethlehem, a complex drama about the relations between Israelis and Palestinians; Fill the Void, a drama about a Jewish Orthodox community; and Cupcakes, a feel-good pop musical. Prices, dates, times and locations vary. For more information and a full schedule, visit www.charlottejewishfilm.com. (Anita Overcash)
