Doc Sunback Film Festival

The Doc Sunback Film Festival is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that exists to connect all genres of independent film from all over the world to our community with a special emphasis on Kansas films and Kansas filmmakers.  We hold a 4 day event in June in historic downtown Mulvane, Kansas.

The Doc Sunback Film Festival began in 2015 with three founding members, Nancy Farber Mottola, Kenneth Linn, & Sheri Kaufman-Marsh. They screened 500+ films and with the help of volunteers put together a film festival & art crawl that spanned 2 days, in 3 theaters, 2 art venues, and featured over 100 films and 12 local artists.

The 2019 Doc Sunback Film Festival was a great success. We showed about 2 hours of films on Thursday evening & followed up with a concert featuring Bill Hearne.  Films were shown all day Friday in two locations and all day Saturday in three locations. The Awards Ceremony was well attended on Saturday night & we finished things up on Sunday with some great films at the Pix theater.

We are already working on next year’s festival which will be held in June 2020.
