About the Festival

The Kansas International Film Festival (KIFF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of independent and classic cinema. Using the art and power of film, we bring communities together to share diverse cultures, viewpoints and conversation. With support from the Fine Arts Group and our community partners, our mission is for independent film to be recognized as a cultural, economic and educational asset in our community.
