EVENTS

JACKSONVILLE LATINO FILM FEST

Spanish-language films take the spotlight in the Jacksonville Latino Film Festival next weekend. It's organized by the Jacksonville Film Festival and includes nine movies from throughout Latin America.

Events start Friday evening at The Jacksonville Landing with an evening with Cuban-born director Leon Ichaso. It ends Sunday night, Nov. 16, with a showing of Dance of My Heart (USA/Cuba) and a party.

There's also a free showing of the family film Because of Winn-Dixie at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville.

Most of the movies will be shown at the Jacksonville Landing Cinematheque, a new movie venue that festival director Jesse Rodriguez hopes will become a permanent home for film.

MUSIC

ROCK FROM THE POLES

America doesn't have a monopoly on good rock bands. U2 is Irish. The Beatles were British. The Scorpions hailed from Germany. AC/DC is Australian.

We recently ran across a video from a band called Feel, which comes from Poland. Their song, W odpowiedzi na Twoj list, is a pretty solid mainstream rocker and would be a big hit except for one fact: It's sung in Polish. Go to Youtube.com and search "feel list" to hear it.
