The Kansas City FilmFest runs April 11th - 15th.

The 16th annual Kansas City FlimFest gets under way on Wednesday, April 11th.

The festival will screen many short and feature-length movies at several locations around the metro KC area.

“Nailbiter,” a ‘wholesome’ horror flick directed by KC filmmaker Patrick Rea, will kick-off the festivities on Wednesday, April 11th at 7pm at the AMC Mainstreet Theatre. The movie has received positive reviews from horror magazines like Fangoria (“An indie feature that provides tension and suspense”) and AllThingsHorrorOnline.com (“”An old-school monster-movie with lots of charm and wit”).

In “Nailbiter,” some people fleeing a tornado get more than they bargained for when they try to hole up in a house they assume was abandoned.

Dozens of additional films from many genres will be featured, and the festival will also include workshops, seminars and panel discussions.

In addition to the AMC Mainstreet Theater downtown, venues include the AMC Ward Parkway 14, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art – Atkins Auditorium, Innovation Cafe, Stage Port and T2.

Sundance award-winning filmmaker Gordy Hoffman will be on hand to conduct screenplay workshops. The festival will also provide panels to aid filmmakers with distribution, and staged readings will be held for short film screenplays.

An awards ceremony will be held at 6pm on Sunday, April 15th at the AMC Mainstreet, honoring the best of the festival.
