Kansas City is a dandy film town. Don’t you ever forget it.
For proof, check out the upcoming Kansas City Underground Film Festival.
The fest is back bigger than ever this year, featuring a whopping 114 films Sept. 16-26 at the Charlotte Street Foundation, 3333 Wyoming St. in Kansas City.
This year’s fest really leans into local film, naturally. But it also will include films from 27 countries around the world.
The big news, given recent events, is that organizers are planning to pull it off in-person this year.
“We are going to have everything in-person this year,” said Willy Evans, founder and director of the festival. “We found that it’s just really hard to orchestrate and for people to engage when it’s something this niche and this small.”
