Bored to death? Missing local culture? Great news: Starting Monday, you can attend a grassroots film festival showcasing 90 films — about two dozen of them by Kansas City-area artists — all week for just $10.
In normal times, movies in the Kansas City Film Fest International would have been shown on big screens all around the metro. But the festival’s executive director, Veronica Elliott Loncar, says the decision to stream the whole festival came after other, larger film festivals, such as SXSW and Tribeca, announced that some or all of their 2020 programming would be made available online for people staying at home due to the spread of COVID-19.
