Screening your film is just the beginning!

While screening your film to our warm and supportive audience is reward in and of itself, we also have a few actual awards to sweeten the deal.  KCFF awards are presented at the Closing Night Awards Ceremony and some include cash, prizes, and all come with bragging rights for an entire year.

This year, we’re pleased to announce a new award for The William F. White International Best Canadian Short presented to the best short in our Canadian Shorts program, the prize includes $2500 in-kind rentals from Whites.  We’ll also present the ever-popular, ever-impressive Steam Whistle Homebrew Award for Best Local Short presented to a locally produced short film, the prize includes $500 cash and beer for a year from Steam Whistle; the KCFF Best Youth Short presented to a filmmaker 17 and under; and finally, the Limestone Financial People’s Choice Award, awarded to the most popular title of the year as voted by KCFF audiences.

If you want to get in on this action, there’s still time!  Short film submissions are due December 15.
