General Support Sponsorships


Support on any level from our community partners is essential to KIFF, an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Your contributions, no matter how big or small, helps us gather filmmakers in Kansas City, host panel discussions, community forums and events during the festival.

Your support will also help us achieve our goal of developing more opportunities for film students through programs and partnerships with the vast pool of talented professors, filmmakers and programs in the Kansas City Metro area.
