Cash Grand Prizes! 
Dark Curved Shapes


The KICKASS FILM FEST is not your average Film Festival. We strive to be a staple in the Colorado film community and beyond. Unlike any other, we provide an experience with awards and prizes for all winners, a red carpet experience for all showcases, and networking opportunities in the Art & Film community.

The KICKASS FILM FEST challenges independent filmmakers to write, film, and edit a 5-7 minute short film in just 72-hours! Then we host a public screening for all film lovers followed by an award ceremony for awards like Best Film, Best Actor, Best Director, etc.
