The annual Joedance Film Festival, two weekend nights of movies and fellowship in Uptown Charlotte’s Fourth Ward neighborhood (10th Street Townhomes Courtyard), honors the late Joe Restaino to raise awareness and funds for rare pediatric cancers research – specifically sarcomas, blastomas and brain tumors. Joedance is also committed to raising awareness of the local film industry by showcasing only local films. The family chose a film festival to honor their son because of his love of movies.

Joedance raised $20,000 during the 2013 festival Aug. 2-3, a 614 percent increase from 2012 ($2,800). Both 2013 film festival nights were sell-outs.
