The 2021 KC Fringe Festival, which runs from July 18 through Aug. 1, is going virtual for the second consecutive year.
To be sure, the lack of in-person participation for more than 50 shows in this year’s festival isn’t ideal. But it has opened up some new opportunities to reach a broader audience.
So says Timothy Harvey, who programmed the film portion of the event for the Independent Filmmakers Coalition of Kansas City (IFCKC). The IFCKC has participated in the festival for more than a decade.
Harvey is touting the opportunity to stream films and other recorded KC Fringe Festival shows on your schedule from the comfort of your own couch.
“Everybody has got a bigger audience, which is fantastic because … it gets more eyes on this incredible Kansas City and regional talent,” Harvey said.
Tickets range from $5 for a single show to a $200 all-access pass for the entire festival. To learn more, watch the attached video.
