The 15th annual Kansas International Film Festival opens for one week only, this Fri, Nov. 6--with 80 independent films shown one time only! Dozens of filmmakers and directors will be present for Q&A's.
KIFF president Brian Mossman and his screening board (the ones in blue shirts with bloodshot eyes!) have assembled a lineup this year with something for everyone: narratives, docs, shorts and animation.
The schedule, descriptions and all the trailers--all at kansasfilm.com. Sort by your favorite genres.
Can't decide? Just show up. Ask a movie maven at the table to coach you. You will meet some great new friends over a snack in the KIFF Cafe.
Curious Worlds/The Art & Imagination of David Beck at 5:40pm. A weird obsessive artist. Asked where he gets his ideas, he replies, "I have a book. Ideas for Skinny Sculptors".
Watch the hilarious trailer for Curious Worlds here.
And then at 7:40pm, an Oscar nominee, "dream/killer", a true story about a young man in Columbia Mo convicted of murder --based on some witness's dream! Spoiler alert--after 10 years, his Dad and lawyers got him out of prison. The filmmakers will attend the screening. This is the kind of excitement you witness at KIFF every fall.

KIFF changed my life, maybe the same will happen to you. This is where I became an activist, after seeing "Under Our Skin", the doc about Lyme Disease. I started lobbying to support dozens of Kansas City victims of deer syphilus that the CDC and our two state governments refuse to diagnose or treat, whilst waiting for a new vaccine.
One year, I heard a Sex Offender Prison Choir. From Leavenworth. There's always a memorable moment at KIFF. Come have yours. Open your eyes--but please, turn off your cell phones. See you Fri. Nov. 6 thru Thurs. the 12th--at the Glenwood Arts at Ranchmart.
Schedules and trailers, all the deets here!
