Fans of independent film will be able to watch productions from near and far at the upcoming Doc Sunback Film Festival.

With daily schedules full of screenings and other sessions, the festival will take place from Thursday, June 13 to Sunday, June 16 across three locations in downtown Mulvane: the Pix Community Center, Art Towne, and the Mulvane Historical Museum.

As a non-profit organization, the festival seeks to connect genres of independent film to the Mulvane community, with a special focus on Kansas films and filmmakers.

Entries in the festival span multiple genres and come from around the state and nation, with a handful submitted from outside of the U.S. In order to qualify for the festival, films had to be screened at least twice and placed into a category.

Most of the films entered into the festival are short films. Short film categories include Art Works, Heartbreak Hill, Deep Subjects, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Family Matters, and Odd Jobs.

There is a separate category for feature-length films, which has five entries.

A single ticket at the festival costs $3, which grants access to one category of films. The tickets can be used during any day of the festival at any of its locations.

A VIP pass grants entry into all film screenings at the festival. The $59 pass also gives access to the VIP/Filmmaker’s Lounge and a commemorative t-shirt.

An award ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Pix Community Center.

Tickets can be purchased online at or in person at the festival’s box office.
