Kansas City, Mo. – CinemaKC is proud to announce a working partnership with the 2019 Kansas International Film Festival (KIFF). The organization will film interviews of filmmakers who have been selected for this year’s KIFF Local.
The 19th annual Kansas International Film Festival marks an enduring presence in the region. KIFF Local has been an important component for the past several years by featuring local filmmakers and films made locally.
CinemaKC is an initiative of the Film Society of Greater Kansas City, which has been connecting with movie lovers since 1991. It has showcased regional filmmakers on television, internet, and live venues since 2010.
“This is an important partnership that should facilitate both CinemaKC and KIFF in supporting local films and filmmakers”, said Jerry Rapp, Chairman of CinemaKC.
