Our mission is to connect people through great films, lively conversation and a shared cultural experience.
We want to promote and support the short film genre by bringing together experienced and first-time filmmakers from Kansas, and all over the world. We select and screen new discoveries along side award-winning short films from the international film festival circuit.
Our emphasis is on “Unseen Kansas”, highlighting films about, made in, or by people from our amazing home state, but we also want to create a space to challenge perceptions, provoke debate and influence film culture in Kansas and beyond; to bring people together and spark debate, empathy, anger, understanding, happiness or sadness.
