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.
DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 1ST! www.regonline.com/bbfilmfest2015
KIFF – KANSAS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
October/November – KIFF? Terror on the Plains? More ‘tails to come. December – 1/3/5 Competition
December – Holiday Party! Because party! Also kicking off the EPTAS/Artist mixer! February – EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY! Spring – Science Fiction/Fantasy Films for Comicon
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.
