Canes Festival Video Submissions


Submit Your Short Film to the Canes Film Festival

The annual Jackson Orthopedic Foundation (JOF) Canes Film Festival & Gala helps to improve the lives of people with orthopedic conditions through education, research, and patient outreach.

Video is an amazing tool to share both critical health information and people’s stories. For the past few years, the students in our Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) have created informational videos about orthopedic health as part of the program.

Inspired by the role that canes have in orthopedic rehab and a similar-sounding and important international film festival, we are inviting individuals and organizations to join in the fun of entering the Canes Film Festival.

Canes 2018 Award Winners: Amaris Durst & Nancy Sun
