Borscht Corp. presents
Werner Herzog Defends Dade

concept by Lucas Leyva
The Borscht Corporation commissions, produces, and showcases film/video works by emerging artists. The company's focus is telling Miami stories which transcend the city's insipid exterior and stereotypical misrepresentations in mainstream entertainment.
Our production staff and affiliates consist of filmmakers, writers, musicians, and performance artists. Together we showcase the company's output, and the relevant works of regional filmmakers across the nation and globe, at a quasi-annual week-long event called the Borscht Film Festival.
We believe in interdisciplinary collaboration. We believe in regional filmmaking. We believe in Miami.
We also own a small Naval Armada and a trained shark.
The above video, by Lindsay Scoggins, visualizes our battle cry.
Borscht is proud to be supported by a Arts Challenge Grant from John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to continue "forging the cinematic identity of Miami both locally and globally," in its mission to "redefine Miami in cinema and vice-versa."
