Borscht Film Festival Returns With a Five-Day Showcase of Local Works

In a nondescript, one-story house not far off NE 79th Street and Biscayne Boulevard on Miami's Upper Eastside, a collective has set up shop to finish works for the 2014 Borscht Film Festival. The local group of visual artists and filmmakers has spent more than a decade opening eyes to the splendor beneath Miami's surface while simultaneously celebrating its surface. It's the festival's ninth edition, which is often as surreal as it is campy, tongue-in-cheek, poetic, and layered. Jonathan David Kane, who's been making films with Borscht since 2009, explains, "It's whenever we've made enough content to share. This year we have too much content; that's why we have like a weeklong festival."
