IFCKC Presents: Call For Scripts!

2015 will be the year of film production for the IFC. The plan is to produce 3-4 films, featuring the best of Kansas City’s talent, and to serve as a working classroom for anyone interested in working in film.

Subject matter and content is wide open, with only one real requirement: The films produced by the IFCKC are meant to show the best of what our talented members and the wider Kansas City film community can do, and why Kansas City is a great place to make independent film.

Qualifying scripts must be 15 minutes or less, formatted in standard industry script form, and submitted as a PDF to [email protected] on or before April 30th, 2015.
