The 4th Annual Wilmington Jewish Film Festival begins this Sunday, April 23. The films are screening at Thalian Hall's Mainstage. Listen above to hear Peggy Pancoe Rossoff & Debbie Smith talk about the festival and some of the films. Individual tickets and Festival Passes are available online and at the door. Here is the schedule:

Ocean Isle Beach in Brunswick County is the second North Carolina municipality to receive a permit for a terminal groin since a long-standing ban was lifted in 2011. 

The Summer Series from the Wilmington Jewish Film Festival has drawn greater crowds than expected-a great "problem" to have. A screening of the final double feature, Bad Faith and Aya, has been added to give more people the opportunity to see these award-winning shorts; screening times are now 3:00 and 7:00 on Thursday, 8/25. 

The Wilmington Jewish Festival keeps growing, this year offering 8 feature films + 8 shorts. The Festival kickoff on Sunday, May 1st features Labyrinth of Lies at 3:00 at Thalian Hall, followed by a buffet reception in the ballroom.

This broadcast of CoastLine originally aired on March 11, 2015. 

Terminal groins are hardened structures designed to control the movement of sand and slow erosion on beaches. 

Until just a few years ago, these structures were not legal in North Carolina.  But in 2011, the Legislature lifted the ban to allow four such structures – along with a host of caveats.
