OM FILM FEST
Sept 4th-6th @ the Plaza Cinemark
Schedule and info are online at www.omfilmfest.com
The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) in Chattanooga, KC Digital Drive and the Kansas City Film Society are collaborating on a milestone event, Capture: A Community Filmmaking Project to be held Sept. 18-20, 2015. For the first time, a crowd-sourced film project will happen simultaneously in two cities in two different states.
Founded by AVA in 2013, Capture joins community members with professional film editors and musicians to create short films around specific themes. Over a 24-hour period from September 18-19, scores of filmmakers will take to the streets in KC and Chattanooga to capture five, 30-second clips around a theme. Over the ensuing 24 hours, teams of editors and musicians will take that footage and turn it into fully realized short films to be premiered on Sunday, September 20. The 48-hour film contest comes on the heels of Techweek Kansas City, Sept. 14-20.
Capture is now looking for those teams of editors and musicians that will turn crowdsourced footage into works of art.

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. Your opportunity to be partnered in a mentor/mentee shadowing experience in the making of this film. Ultimately we look to produce 4 films/working classrooms a year, going forward.
Looking to develop funding so that the lead teaching crew may be paid. All participants will share ownership of the produced film.
Our first script will be Paula Smith’s, AN URN FOR CALVIN. Congrats to Paula!!
