Patrick Rea, assistant director for Bunker Hill, is getting the Emerging Filmmaker Award at the Kansas International Film Festival (formerly the KAN Film Festival – ha! get it?). Congrats, Patrick!

Now in its sixth year, the Kansas International Film Festival (KIFF) will showcase 50 feature-length and narrative efforts, about half of which are from overseas.

“We’re open for films — both competitive and noncompetitive — from anyplace in the world,” Meade says. “We’re inundated with stuff now. There is so much product out there. You really have to have something that no one else has done to get it screened.”
