Our annual Canes Film Festival & Gala is a fun-filled celebration of student films about orthopedic health. The benefit event also features updates on JOF's flagship programs, audience awards for the best short film, and the opportunity to socialize with great colleagues and friends.
Our 2020 event was our first-ever virtual fundraiser, held on Zoom and live-streamed on YouTube. Check out an event summary and watch the recorded event on our blog.
Why Canes? And why video? 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) and Orthopedic Primary Care Program have created informational videos about orthopedic health as part of the programs.
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 & Gala.
