The Borscht Film Festival is Miami’s quasi-annual local independent film fest. Borscht commissions and showcase films created by emerging artists that tell Miami stories, forging the cinematic identity of the city. Using a combination of awards, grants, and tax-deductible donations, Borscht green-lights and produces made-in-Miami films, then throws Miami’s cinematic event of the year to showcase them. The Borscht Film Festival has been called the “Miami’s alt-culture summit” as well as the “hippest, most eclectic and electric movie festival in South Florida” by the Miami Herald, and named “Miami’s Best Film Festival” by the New Times.
The Borscht Corporation is made possible through support from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, and the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
