Borscht Film Festival Now Accepting Submissions
Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke was a Borscht pick before going on to Sundance and SXSW.
Attention, Miami filmmakers: Your city's funkiest, most 305-inspired film festival wants your work.
Submissions are now open for the eighth year of the Borscht Film Festival, scheduled for the end of 2012. And if you have a film in the works -- or even just an idea for a film -- you could be among the directors and producers featured this year.
In its call for submissions, released this morning, Borscht stipulated that submitting filmmakers meet just one criteria: They must be "born, raised, inspired by, or living in South Florida."
"Borscht encourages producers, directors, writers, or even those with only an idea for a film to reach out to them," the release continues.
