The Tampa Film Review is a monthly showcase of local films. Started by co-founders Paul and Peter Guzzo, the night is held at the International Bazaar in Ybor City. The retail space transforms the rear of the building into a cozy 100 plus seating arrangement for the screening. Getting there early is highly recommended as seating fills most months. You are encouraged to bring your business cards and flyers to self promote and share with fellow industry and enthusiasts.
This month's review will be held on Friday, April 11th, 2008 from 8 - 10 p.m. at the International Bazaar, 1600 E. Eighth Ave. in the Centro Ybor complex in Ybor City. The event is FREE and open to the public.
