CSA to be screened at KC film festival

The eighth annual KC Filmmakers Jubilee, April 16 through 22, will feature CSA: The Confederate States of America on Friday, April 16. Kevin Willmott, associate professor of theatre and film, directed the film.
In addition, the festival will screen several film and video projects created by KU faculty, students and alumni.

The festival will open with back-to-back benefit screenings of CSA at the Tivoli Cinemas, 4050 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, Mo., at 7 and 9:30 p.m. April 16. Tickets will be $25 for the first screening and $7 for the second screening.

The film was selected for showing at the January 2004 Sundance Film Festival. During the festival, IFC Films purchased the film and filmmaker Spike Lee agreed to lend his name as an executive producer with Marvin Voth of Lawrence.

KU professor Matt Jacobson was the film cinematographer, and Rick Cowan of Kansas City, Mo., was a producer.

Willmott, Jacobson and Cowan will discuss the film at the Westport Coffee House, 4010 Pennsylvania, Kansas City, Mo., at 6 p.m. April 16. Willmott will take part in a panel discussion on “Writing/Directing/Acting” at 11 a.m. Sunday, April 18, at the Tivoli Cinemas. Both discussions are free and open to the public.

In addition to CSA, Jacobson’s work will be represented in the festival with his experimental video short, “Rain,” during the “War: Honor, Dishonor, Renewal” Shorts Program at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 17, at Screenland, 1656 Washington, Kansas City, Mo., and at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 19, at the Westport Coffee House.

Jacobson also was the cinematographer for KU graduate student Mark Vonschlemmer’s music video, “The Shadow of the Czar,” which screens at 3:30 p.m. April 16 at the Tivoli Cinemas.
