Alamo Drafthouse Theater



June 3rd – Daniel Banks: Music Videos of several genres.

June 10th – We will screen the IFCKC sponsored 48HR films.

June 17th – Audio Twins SEMINAR! Tyler Thompson and Phil Cattell! They’re super cool pros and will talk about post-production audio.

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


We’d like each team to 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.

June 24th – Film Society, Altman Center Fundraiser

June 27th & 28th: Maker Faire! B-level will be aaaall about KC Film. We will have a booth. We may need volunteers to help Steph Scupham (our Film Commissioner) with various parts of the weekend.

We will have more info soon!

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.
