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.
