It's here! The lineup for our MAIN NIGHT!!!
Saturday, February 25, 2017
Olympia Theater 7PM
Miami, Fla, USA
See the films that Local hero film critic Rene Rodriguez previewed and said:
"Borscht’s work has shown the world there is a young and vital arts community in Miami making original films imbued with the city’s unique sensibilities. Underneath the group’s playful, irreverent veneer is a serious commitment to creative expression, hard work and intellectual curiosity...And the intangible qualities that have become Borscht trademarks — a playful, brash sense of humor, zero tolerance for self-importance, pop-culture savvy and unexpected, sometimes poetic beauty — permeate this year’s batch of short films." - Miami Herald Cover Story
