Here we are, a decade later, celebrating our 10th birthday at Joedance.
We’ve had 10 amazing years of working to fulfill Joe’s wish to spread awareness and raise funds for rare pediatric cancer. Joe didn’t know we’d celebrate his legacy through a film festival, but we think he’d be proud.
As we enter this milestone, we’re looking forward to Joedance 2019 with excitement and enthusiasm! Each year we strive to improve the festival experience, honor the filmmakers, and, of course, raise funds for research. Here are some special ways we plan to do that and more this year on our 10th anniversary…
We’ve Added SC Filmmakers To The List
It’s been an idea we’ve been kicking around for a while and the board decided this was the year to do it! In case you haven’t heard, for the first time ever, Joedance is open to North AND South Carolina filmmakers with a local connection.
No More Tent
Our growth and expansion over the years have allowed us to move on to bigger and better things. We’re retiring the tent for Joedance 2019 and moving the festival entirely inside our new home at the Charlotte Ballet.
We’re Adding An Extra Night
Joedance 2019 will be our first three-day festival kicking off on Thursday, August 1, 2019. In addition to featuring films, Thursday’s reception will feature students from the Arts + Essemble to celebrate our partnership and love for the local arts.
Tickets Are On Sale Earlier This Year
Instead of waiting until July, we’re extending the opportunity to our patrons and donors to secure their tickets a few months earlier. Tickets are now available so grab yours before they sell out.
We thank you for 10 wonderful years of support, and we look forward to celebrating with you this August. Cheers to 10 more!
