Mark your calendars. TheBorscht Film Festival
announced the date and location for their next cinema fest: April 23rd at the Arsht Center. At last year's, we saw working cuts of a flaneur's stroll through Liberty City in "Day N Night Out
," which later screened at Cannes, and "Xemoland
," an animated short set in Key Biscayne, which recently showed at Sundance. We're grateful these "CCCV Stories
," tales from 305's distinct neighborhoods, are showing the world Miami's many faces. As Pitbull grunts from the lips of a young Werner Herzog above, "That's what they get for thinking Miami is just Miami Beach." Word. FollowBorscht on Twitter

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
