DTTW:KC

New this year, five of the Top 10 films will go on to compete in the DTTW:KC, which takes place at the AMC Theatres in Leawood, KS on August 27th. The showcase will be hosted by Wichita-native Sarah Kallail, and the films will be live critiqued by a panel of KC-based industry professionals.

“DTTW:KC is designed to connect the Wichita and Kansas City filmmaking communities, cross-pollenate talent and spark collaboration,” said TFA Executive Director Lela Meadow-Conner. “We are extremely grateful to AMC Theatres for their generous support of this venture.”

Three of the five selections will be the 2016 Down to the Wire: 24 Hour Film Race 1st Place Film and Best Student Film as determined by the VIP Judge’s Panel, and the Audience Award winner. The worldwide audience will have a say in programming the remaining two DTTW:KC selections when two more films will join the lineup via an online competition beginning on July 8th. The winner of the Top 5 showcase in Kansas City will receive the DTTW Best of Kansas Award.

This just in: The WINNER of DTTW:KC will screen as part of the New York Film Critics Series in 55 arthouse cinemas around the country! The series is hosted by Peter Travers, film critic of Rolling Stone & plays to an audience of more than 7,000. ICT > KC > NYC > USA!
