Middle of the Map Fest
September 2 - September 9
Middle of the Map Fest annually curates and cultivates the unique arts and creative culture of the Midwest, bringing together a sense of community in local and national talent in an annual festivals featuring music and film.
Last year’s Middle of the Map was widely successful with over 5000 in attendance for the overall fest. The film fest is an offshoot of Middle of the Map Fest that annually averages 1500 seats. The film fest, like the music fest, is organized by The Record Machine, a homegrown KC-based indie record label, and Ink Magazine.
Our goal is to curate 25-30+ films of all kinds; feature films, independent flicks, award-winning movies, rockumentaries, documentaries, along with fanfare parties, and student shorts. Middle of the Map Film Fest is simply aimed at rewarding audiences with excellent cinematic experiences.
