The BORSCHT Film Festival is a semi-annual film festival held in Miami, Florida. The festival's mission is "to commission and showcase films by emerging artists that tell Miami stories going beyond the typical portrayal of a beautiful but vapid party town, forging the cinematic identity of the city."[1]

The BORSCHT Film Festival is a non-profit Miami-based organization dedicated to commissioning and showcasing films that tell Miami stories by young professional Miami artists. Each year, using a combination of awards, grants, and tax-deductible donations, BORSCHT funds between six and twelve short films that are then shown at the festival.

Borscht is a local-driven art events that emerged in post-Art Basel Miami.[2] and "Miami's Best Film Festival."[3]

Some of BORSCHT's films have gone on to screen at Cannes Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, and at the Guggenheim Museums in New York City, Bilbao, Venice, and Berlin.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The festival was founded by a group of New World School of the Arts students in 2004.[4]
