Borscht Film Festival's 2012 Events: A Hypnotist, a Chris Bosh Tribute, and a Celebrity Animal Petting Zoo

The Borscht Film Festival may not be the biggest or the most well-known film fest in the world. But for sheer quirky delight, it can't be beat. And this year is no exception.

Borscht 8 recently announced its lineup of events, and there's much more to look forward to than the main screening event at the Arsht Center. (But yeah, we're pretty excited about that too.)

This year's festival stretches out for a long, wacky weekend, kicking off December 13 with psychedelic films on the giant wall at Soundscape Park and ending December 16 with the announcement of Borscht's plans to franchise in another city. Along the way, you can get mindscrewed by a professional hypnotist; spend an evening contemplating the intergalactic awesomeness of Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh; and snuggle with your favorite furry stars of regional film classics at a petting zoo.
