Kansas interntional film festival
A one-day film fest with limited thematic scope, Reel Democracy earns this year's Best Festival nod because of its election-year importance. Its strongest documentary, Unprecedented, revealed disturbing disenfranchisement evidence that even Fahrenheit 9/11 hadn't addressed. Outfoxed collected infuriating examples of Fox News' unfair and unbalanced coverage of current events, and Uncovered recounted the spotty reasoning that led the United States into Iraq. A grassroots activism fair in the theater's lobby, filled with sign-up tables and information pamphlets, gave viewers of the sold-out screenings an immediate outlet for their outrage.
