We are proud to announce that we are official sponsors of the Borsch Film Festival.
If you don’t know who they are let us enlighten you a bit…
Borscht is an open-source collaborative dedicated to telling Miami stories.
Through commission grants, film production, web projects, myth-making, and idiosyncratic events (including the biannual Borscht Film Festival), we redefine the stereotypically insipid depiction of our city in the mainstream media.
Founded by members of the generation that came of age with the infant metropolis itself, Borscht hopes to articulate the voices of the New Miami.
They believe in interdisciplinary collaboration. They believe in regional filmmaking. They believe in Miami just as much as we do!
They also own a small Naval Armada and a trained shark (not cute, these are facts).
We included a clip of a video by Lindsay Scoggins, ( Lindsay is also a personal friend of Anthea’s and a fan of Om Nom Nom Cookies) which visualizes their battle cry.
The Borscht Film Festival is proud to be supported by a Arts Challenge Grant from John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to continue “forging the cinematic identity of Miami both locally and globally,” in its mission to “redefine Miami in cinema and vice-versa.”
Check their website for this years upcoming events and for ways you too as fellow Miamians can give back to this great initiative.
Plus …. We absolutely dig their bad ass logo!
