Submit Your Short Film to the Inaugural Canes Film Festival

When we started making plans to celebrate JOF’s 20th anniversary as an organization, we wanted to make the event special. We thought about our mission and our work, and decided that a small film festival with a relevant theme would be fun.

Canes are part of orthopedic rehab for people to walk unassisted, and the word Canes sounds surprisingly similar to an important international film festival. We asked our 2018 summer interns, as their final project, to create informational videos about orthopedic health as a theme. They rose to the occasion and created some wonderfully entertaining short pieces, which we will feature at our November 4 anniversary celebration.

We are also inviting other organizations and individuals to join in the fun of entering the Inaugural Canes Film Festival.
