The 10th Annual Joedance Film Festival

August 1-3, 2019, 7:00pm-10:30pm

Mission Statement

Joedance raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research at Atrium Health Levine Children’s through an annual film festival featuring directors, producers, writers and actors who share a North Carolina or South Carolina connection. We support research and clinical trials for pediatric sarcomas, blastomas, and brain tumors.

Our Vision

Using a multicultural festival incorporating the power of cinema and performing arts to raise funds for pediatric cancer research at Atrium Health Levine Children’s Hospital.

The Joedance Film Festival, held annually the first weekend of August, in Uptown Charlotte’s Fourth Ward neighborhood and hosted by The Charlotte Ballet, honors the late Joe Restaino to raise funds for rare pediatric cancer research and clinical trials at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC. Joedance is also committed to supporting filmmakers, producers, writers and directors with a Charlotte connection by screening their films at the film festival.
