This year we’d like to try something a bit different for the ONS.

Each team will have one person embedded in the team whose job is to shoot behind-the-scenes material. They are not part of the team. Think of it as a journalist embedded in the trenches with the army reporting on a war.
Or this might need to be more than one person. It might be a small team of it’s own.
Their job is to record what goes on with the team they are following, the good and the bad.
Then they will put together a rough edit and that will be screened following the competition screening, while the judges make their decision.
July 16th – 26th – KC FRINGE FESTIVAL
We will have at least one program! We may need your films!
We will have more info soon!

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.
