Lauren Faust, the woman who popularized My Little Pony cartoons with little girls and adult male fans, is scheduled to attend a Kansas City FilmFest screening of the documentary Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony at the Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet (at 14th Street and Main).

Faust, who is credited as an executive producer on Bronies, is slated for the Saturday, April 13, screening at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $20.

Scripts written by Faust and her collaborators have not only encouraged youngsters and their parents to understand the value of friendship but have also managed to inject a lot of wit, insight and heart into a series originally intended to sell Hasbro toys.

Faust's many admirers, including very macho members of the military, call her "Fausticorn" and revere her, even though she's no longer with the series.

Fans who can't make the Saturday screening can catch one Thursday, April 11, at 6:30 p.m. Executive producers John de Lancie, who played the mysterious Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Michael Brockhoff are slated to be at the Alamo for that showing, which is co-sponsored by Social Media Club. Tickets cost $20.

As all well-informed Bronies know, de Lancie is the voice for the shifty villain Discord in the series. For more information, see the KC FilmFest's website or the Alamo's site.
