Doc Sunback Film Festival – in June
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 local communities with a special emphasis on Kansas films and Kansas filmmakers. We hold a 4 day event in June in historic downtown Mulvane, Kansas. This upcoming season the event will be June 13th – 16th, 2019.
The Doc Sunback Film Festival began in 2015 with three founding members, Nancy Farber Mottola, Kenneth Linn, and Sheri Kaufman-Marsh. This small band of over-achievers 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 2018 Doc Sunback Film Festival took place on June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th, 2018. We showed about 2 hours of films on Thursday evening, including the independent film American Folk. 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 before we headed outside to show films in Cobb Park. We finished things up on Sunday with some great films at the Pix Community Center.
We are already working on next year’s festival which will be held in June 2019.
