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.

We’re going after grant money! Help us raise the funds! Rent equipment, renew your membership, or donate out of the kindness of your beautiful heart. We need to raise $1,500 to earn 1,500.

IFCKC Presents: Call For Scripts! 
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.

Turn in digital files for upcoming screening events please. Please note: Use H.264, Mpeg4 or Avi. Data DVDs are OK (not a burned dvd. if you don’t know what this means. just don’t do it. really)! We had a few KIFF entries that were in ProRes, which is an unnecessarily large format for our purposes.

Also remember: From now on we will not be accepting any copyrighted music WITHOUT authorizations. We will be asking for the authorizations. So have them. There are a ton of examples of these documents online. If you have trouble finding them, ask Tim about it and he can help you.

Tim is a member on the film commision, which is a big benefit to us. He’s kind of a big deal.

The Writer’s Place would be a great resource!
