The seventh annual Tampa Bay Jewish Film Festival continues through Monday after Wednesday's opening night events in Clearwater. The festivities move to Tampa Theatre tonight, Saturday and Sunday, plus a finale Monday night at Hillel Jewish Student Center at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Tonight's presentation, at 7:30, is Trembling Before G-d, a documentary profiling homosexuality in Hasidic and Orthodox cultures. A panel discussion sponsored by Hillel and USF Pride follows the screening. After Friday's Sabbath break, the festival resumes Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with Focus, based on Arthur Miller's novel of a World War II couple (William H. Macy, Blair Brown) mistakenly identified as Jewish by their bigoted Brooklyn neighbors. The romantic comedy Late Marriage will be shown at 9:30 p.m. Sunday's lineup includes Stolen Summer (1 p.m.), the result of HBO's Project Greenlight reality series, and The Grey Zone (4 p.m.), a Holocaust prison camp drama starring Steve Buscemi, Mira Sorvino and Harvey Keitel. Monday's 7:30 p.m. screening at Hillel USF is Time of Favor. Tickets are available at the box office for $8 per show, with discounts for students and seniors.
