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.
Because Borscht assists in the production of films in all stages, its submission deadlines are staggered. Filmmakers with work in its beginning stages must apply by May 1; films applying for finishing funds have a deadline of July 1; and completed films applying for screening only must apply by Oct. 1.
