Kansas City Women in Film & Television
Kansas City Women in Film & Television (KCWIFT) is pleased to announce the 6th annual KCWIFT and Kansas City FilmFest Short Screenplay Contest. KCWIFT has partnered with Kansas City FilmFest, presented by the Kansas City Filmmakers Jubilee, to host this annual short screenwriting competition. The goals are to support female screenwriters, as well as to encourage all writers to create strong female protagonists. The contest winners will be eligible to receive prizes that support these goals.
As member of Film Society KC, you get access to advance screenings of first run films through Allied-THA, member benefits at Alamo Mainstreet, Cinetopia, GlenArts, Rio, Screenland Armour and Screenland Crossroads theatres, as well access to advance sales and discounts to all of Film Society KC special events! You also help build the film community in Kansas City, because all of the funds go to putting on events and supporting local filmmakers.
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in – and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
