One Night Stand 2015!

June 20th – at THE TIVOLI! Kickoff is at 8am Thou Mayest, 10 hours later, we meet at The Tivoli.

Our most popular competition! The One Night Stand festival gives filmmakers 10 fun, frantic hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film. Compile your own crew, talent and equipment. We’ll draw one THEME, one ITEM, and ONE LINE OF DIALOGUE at random. Using these elements, complete your film and screen your film that same evening at one of the best parties in KC.

Please Let Us Know You’re Attending! Facebook Event

See the our website’s Event Page for more details about Entry fees, Ticket Prices. and Screening.

We’ll be having some folks along from CinemaKC who will be shooting some BTS footage and getting interviews about the event.
We’d also like each team to shoot BTS footage of their day… good and bad. We’ll have some folks checking in with teams to shoot some, then they will put together a rough edit and that will be screened following the competition screening, while the judges make their decision.

What others have said...

…[Members are] very serious about what they do…I got to spread the word about [my film] and find out about other people’s projects too…Tons of people working on web series, movies, shorts, stage plays…they were producers, writers, actors, adminstrative types…I’m excited to be involved.
