Best of Borscht - experimental cinema from Miami

No, it’s not about the East European tart soup. It’s our film program. Do you like them pure and edgy? Films that aren’t mainstream? Then you must definitely come and watch the Borscht Corperation films in the beautiful Cinecitta movie theater during Incubate. We offer four days of 90 minutes during which you can enjoy short films that are all involved around Miami, a freaky force that will impress you for sure!

Every day will have its own theme:

Thursday 19.00 - 20.30: "New Miami Voices"    
Friday 19.00 - 20.30: "Late Night Vibes"              
Saturday 19.00 - 20.30: "Tourists"                        
Sunday 16.00 - 17.30: "Outside Validation"       

Ticket: €9,-
Free entrance for ticket holders of the Incubate festival.

Tickets are available at the door!

Talented filmmakers Jonathan Kane and Keisha Witherspoon from Miami will represent Borscht during this film festival. They will be present in Cinecitta every day to introduce you to the world of Borscht and are happy to answer all of your questions during a Q&A after each program (except Friday). Friday they will host a presentation at the Incubate Cafe from 16.15 till 17.00: 
"Deconstructing the Auteur: Collaborative Filmmaking in the 21st Century"

Borscht has a clear mission to challenge perceptions of Miami as a “beautiful but vapid party town”. They have been ambassadors for the region for years and have become synonymous with the filmmaking community in Miami. It encourages a lot of creativity among the artists and empowers them by granting resources and infrastructure. Borscht develops, oversees, and commissions the creation of dozens of short films, often by first-time filmmakers from diverse socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.

The uniqueness and energy is extraordinary. They have inspired others to form their own collectives and collaborate on each other’s projects. Borscht is different. And that is what we like. As founders Lucas Leyva and Jillian Mayer say about Borscht: “We want to redefine the stereotypically insipid depection of our city in the mainstream media”.

Borscht has had more than 300 festival screenings worldwide including numerous screenings at the Sundance Film Festival and their own Borscht Film Festival. Now the time has come to bring the madness to Tilburg.
