FILM: Charlotte Jewish Film Festival 

Thursday, March 3

The seventh annual Charlotte Jewish Film Festival promises to be out of this world — literally. The 11-day event kicks off with a free screening of An Article of Hope, a documentary about Israel's first astronaut, Ilan Ramon, and the tiny Toran scroll that accompanied him into space aboard the ill-fated shuttle Columbia. All told, the festival will showcase nine feature films, including the award-winning coming-of-age tale The Matchmaker and the documentary Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story (narrated by Dustin Hoffman). Also on the schedule is 1920's The Golem (pictured), the silent classic that relates the medieval Jewish legend about a clay creature who's magically brought to life by a well-meaning rabbi. Several of the festival movies will be presented along with guest speakers and/or short films. Ticket prices vary; All-Film Passes are available for $64. March 3-13; times and venues vary. 704-372-1000.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
