KIFF – KANSAS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

2015 will be the year we begin film production for the IFCKC, by the IFCKC. The plan is to produce at least 2 films this year, featuring the best of Kansas City’s talent, and to serve as a working classroom for anyone interested in working in film. Ultimately we look to produce 4 films/working classrooms a year, going forward.
Our first script will be Paula Smith’s, AN URN FOR CALVIN. Congrats to Paula!!
Patrick Rea will be our first director, and we are in the process of selecting the the primary production crew and setting dates for production, and will keep you updated!
Bruce Branit (Digital Domain) has expressed an interest in directing one.
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.
