Through June 1, filmmakers who either reside in Charlotte or are originally from the city may submit feature-length or short movies. There is no fee to enter. Two feature-length films and four shorts will be chosen by the Joedance selection committee and announced at a June 16 reception at The Saloon at the NC Music Factory. Chosen filmmakers will receive an all-access pass to the festival, which includes a dinner and a red carpet event.

Created in honor of Joe Restaino, a 20-year-old Charlottean who passed away from Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in 2010, the festival donates all proceeds to Levine Children's Hospital to support rare cancer research.
