Borscht Film Festival
Borscht makes movies in Miami and throws a festival unlike any other to showcase and celebrate these works.
All new, original films are commissioned for the event, which has been called "the weirdest film festival on the planet" (Indiewire) and "Miami's best film festival" (Miami New Times.
A four-day, biannual event, Borscht Film Festival is "a crazy experience like nothing else" (Indiewire) that has become "part of the city's cultural character" (Miami Herald) and "one of the biggest forces behind Miami's renaissance." (Huffington Post)
The festival screens world-class content at innovative, immersive, blockbuster events, such as opera house takeovers, DIY theme parks, machete fencing classes, and bodybuilding contests.
Local filmmakers created Borscht in response to a lack of regional infrastructure and support, empowering artists to tell fresh Miami stories while cultivating a new generation of talent and providing a creative platform for under-represented (often female, Latin American, African-American, and Afro-Caribbean) identities in Film.
