Next Saturday, CinemaKC presents the 11th Annual One Night Stand by the Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City (IFCKC) on June 18 at the Screenland Armour Theater on 408 Armour Rd. in North Kansas City. The program includes a mixer at 6:30pm followed by the screenings and a Q&A with filmmakers starting at 7:30pm.
The One Night Stand filmmaking challenge is simple. Starting at 9:30 am on Saturday, June 18th, teams will have just ten hours to conceive, shoot and produce a short film, to be screened at 7:30pm that same evening. All of the teams are given a theme, a required line of dialogue, and a prop to use in the film. No production can be done prior to the event.
“It’s similar to most of the forty-eight hour competitions,” says IFC president Brian Boye, “except we did it first. The One Night Stand was one of the first timed competitions in the country. This will be our eleventh year, and it keeps getting better.”
Teams will have just 10 hours to write scripts, rehearse, shoot, and edit the short films. The final length of each story will be determined by the number of teams that enter the competition. The entry fee for teams is $30, and there is no limit to the number of teams or team members.
The One Night Stand has been one of the more successful fund-raising events for the IFCKC, a 501(c)3 organization that works to help local independent filmmakers gain experience and learn more about the filmmaking process. Professionals, semi-pros, and hobbyists all participate in the organization’s events, and some have gone on to be successful professionals in the film industry. Admission will be $10 for IFCKC members, $15 for non-members. Download the One Night Stand entry form by clicking that link.
