Borscht Film Festival
2017 Borscht Film Festival
On February 22nd, 2017 the quasi-annual Borscht Film Festival sponsored by OneFifty– this year coined Borscht Diez for its 10th anniversary – kicked off in Miami. Our team and a few of our artists gathered in the heat of South Florida to celebrate the artistry and oddities that this creative community has to offer. Their mission: “redefine cinema in Miami”. Holding a panel with OneFifty artist Terrence Nance and our Head of Development, Tamir Muhammad, we were able to gauge directly with the festival goers and discuss our upcoming collaborative work. OneFifty also hosted an event, Shart Tank, where various “new business ideas” were entertainingly pitched in an old bank vault.
In commissioning, producing and showcasing work by various emerging filmmakers from the area, Borscht has not only redefined cinema in Miami, but helped catapult their independent filmmaking community. We can’t wait to continue supporting this growing community and see what else they come up with!
