Festival is 1 hour drive from downtown Kansas City, MO.
Through the powerful medium of film, our goal is to impact the community, the state, and the world to inspire individual and collective action against social injustice like racism, sexism, poverty, and other ills that plague our society. Filmmakers from around the world are encouraged to submit feature length narrative and documentary films, and short narrative, experimental, animated, and documentary films that put a face on the many shades of social injustice and offer a variety of real experiences, sharing their stories with audiences from around the Midwest and beyond.
This is the 3rd year of the festival and the second year that the University of Central Missouri has been involved in producing the festival. Last year's festival featured the now-Oscar nominated film Winter's Bone (which was set in the Show Me state) among many other films.
