A Special Thank You to Our Sponsors!

Grab a Java Monster and binge KCFFI films all night!

Filmmakers Lounge

All times are CST - Requires one of the three KCFFI passes to watch.

Filmmakers have been invited in groups to watch each other’s films and attended their scheduled slot to talk with one another about their films.   We did this in 2020 and the filmmakers said it was one of their favorite things to be a part of!  In order to allow for easier discussion, we do ask for one filmmaker per film (the Director, or if there are several Directors they can attend) We will have the Virtual VIP Filmmakers Lounge open Friday night from 5-6:45PM  CST
