The Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City announces the the 7th annual â€œEvery Picture Tells A Storyâ€ showcase Saturday, December 11, 2010 at 7pm at the Screenland Crown Center.
Filmmakers from around the KC metro area will partner with visual artists of their choosing and create a five-minute film on either a particular piece of art, the artistsâ€™ body of work, or the unique story of the artist themselves. These can be done in the documentary or narrative styles, and past subjects have included a photographer who is going blind, a massive collection of work from an artist with social anxiety disorder, sidewalk chalk, and even a tattoo artist.
On December 11th, filmmakers and artists will gather at 7:00 pm at the Screenland Crown Center for the event. The IFCKC plans to have several of the pieces on display, making the event both a film festival and an art show. Three Judges Awards will be selected, as well as the Audience Choice Award.
â€œEvery Picture Tells a Storyâ€ is one of the IFCKCâ€™s most popular events. IFCKC President Brian Boye adds, â€œThis is a real opportunity for two different visual art media to blend together in a really unique collaboration of artistic expression â€“ for the artist, itâ€™s a chance to showcase his work in a unique forum, and for the filmmaker, itâ€™s a chance to tell a very unique story.â€
Art lovers and fans of independent film are encouraged to attend the screening. Tickets are $5 at the door for IFCKC members, $8 for non-members.
Entry fees: $20 for IFCKC members, $30 for non-members. Each entry will receive two tickets to the screening that night, one for the filmmaker and one for the artist. Entry forms are available on the IFCKC web site â€“ www.ifckc.com.
The Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and continuing education for independent filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike. The group meets at the Westport Coffee House every Wednesday at 7:30pm.

From the Missouri Division of Tourism Blog:
Missouri has become known as a destination with diverse entertainment options and many live shows for every taste, genre and for all generations. Yesterday, I found out about a new show in the making, and if all goes as planned, the world will soon enjoy this new production.
From left, Missouri Division of Tourism Director Katie Steele Danner; Producer/Director Bonnie Brennan; Line Producer Bob Visty; and TV Personality Jann Carl.
I stopped in at Camdenton at the Lake of the Ozarks where I met Bonnie Brennan and Jann Carl, who together with their partner, Julie Harman, are hoping they can bring another Missouri live show to the attention of America. I hope they can, too. Because in so doing, they will feature all that we love about Missouri in a weekly show that hopes to grow as popular as the current â€œAmerican Pickersâ€ and â€œPawn Starsâ€ shown on Monday nights on The History Channel.
The star of the show isnâ€™t the Los Angeles-based journalist, former correspondent for Entertainment Tonight, University of Missouri School of Journalism graduate, Carthage, Missouri native Jann Carl. Nor is it any of the stars of â€œThe Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, Making the Teamâ€ a show produced by Bonnie Brennan. It is not even Julie Harman, the fourth highest-earning winner on NBCâ€™s â€œThe Weakest Linkâ€, only to miss the $64,000 question on â€œWho Wants to be a Millionaireâ€ (hint: The correct answer was â€œMaxâ€.)
Auctioneer Rick Bryant, center, is shown during filming of a History Channel pilot called “$old.”No, the star is a feisty Missouri auctioneer known to all in central Missouri as Rick Bryant. Rick is a second generation auctioneer following in his Dadâ€™s footsteps (Richard Bryant Sr., a Truman State University graduate, I discovered) who together with his family own Bryant Auction, LLC. Rick and his professional staff of four auctioneers, ringmen, office personnel, and movers have more than 100 years of experience, all with their own unique back-stories.
Located in the heart of The Lake of the Ozarks, Bryant Auction is the Lake areaâ€™s leader in auctions. Just like Richard Bryant Sr., Rick has made it a family business. Rickâ€™s son Dylan is the cashier and he created the companyâ€™s website, newsletters, and online media; heâ€™s also a student at State Fair Community College in Sedalia. Rickâ€™s daughter Danyale, a senior at Camdenton High School, is one of the companyâ€™s best clerks. And Rickâ€™s perky wife Tracey runs the concession stand that has weekly specials and exquisite formal quality dinners. After years of hard work and determination, this multi-generational professional family auction company was picked by over hundreds of auction companies across the nation for this reality TV series produced by Evident Entertainment for the History Channel.
This unique group of folks are all working together to improve your television viewing options with this â€œdocu-series,â€ while helping families divest of their family heirlooms and other valuable items in a compassionate, entertaining, honest and fair manner that will provide enjoyment to those in attendance as well as those tuning in if the series gets â€œpicked up.â€ And for those tuning in, they will get to learn more about Missouri and Americaâ€™s Heartland as each segment highlights the history, culture, and diversity of our area.
