Kansas City auditioning at Sundance Film Festival
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Representatives from Kansas City’s newly formed Film Commission will be shining the spotlight on the city during the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The goal is to show film makers from around the world that Kansas City offers great destinations and settings to shoot movies.
Film commission officials note that the movie Gone Girl, which was written by Kansas City native Gillian Flynn, has helped put Kansas City back on the film industry’s location casting lists. The goal of the Sundance Film Festival trip is to network, highlight Kansas City’s equipment and crew availability and to leverage that momentum into a starring role for KC.
