Trent Dawson (ATWT, GH) is the founder of Katonah Classic Stage in Katonah NY. To help launch this theater, which has been affected by the pandemic, he is starting the first annual KCS Film Festival, scheduled for August 28th, 2020. Katonah Classic Stage (KCS) is a new, non-profit theatre company in Katonah, NY, whose mission is to offer exceptional, diverse, and professional productions of classical and contemporary plays. Since the Covid-19 pandemic has halted all live performance, KCS is reaching out to the community in a new way to foster art, creativity and a love of classic theatre.

If you are an experienced filmmaker or an aspiring one, this is an opportunity to have your film seen by prominent people in the industry. KCS FF will accept short films, 30 seconds to 30 minutes long, with any theme, but the theatre is particularly interested in works inspired by classic theatre. Examples may include taking a line from Romeo and Juliet to create an entirely new screenplay, stop motion animation set in an ancient Greek theatre, August Wilson as a space opera, or a documentary about a grandparent’s love of Chekhov. Classic themes are suggested, not required. Use your imagination, you may even be able to reflect a classic to look like a soap opera! Daytime actors/professionals can submit. It's time to have some fun during this quarantine!

KCS has partnered with Film Freeway, the most widely used film festival submission platform in the world, to encourage and promote indie filmmakers of all ages. Early bird deadline for submissions is July 15th, regular deadline is August 15th, and notification of acceptance on August 17th.There is a nominal submission fee and several age categories. Films from children are welcome. 

The goal of this festival is to bring neighbors together in a creative community in a time of social distancing. Judges will be film and theatre professionals from the Katonah/NYC area. Laurels will be awarded to the winners with other perks. Whether the festival will have an in-person component or be virtual will be determined closer to the date.

The theater company and the film festival are founded by Actor/Director/Writer/Producer Trent Dawson, a three-time Daytime-Emmy nominated actor. Best known for his 11-year turn as Henry Coleman on As the World Turns, Trent has appeared in many television roles including the latest season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Trent is also an accomplished stage actor and he has worked on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and at regional theaters across the country. As a writer, Trent's plays have been performed at Manhattan Rep and The Barrow Group. One of Trent’s plays, The Six, was adapted to a screenplay, which Trent directed and produced and can be seen at film festivals this season.

Regarding KCS’s commitment to “classic works,” Trent states, "These plays are still performed not because they're studied in English class, but because they're some of the greatest things ever written. When put into professional hands, the classics can lift the human spirit in a remarkable way. Imagine your favorite piece of music, whether it's Mozart, or Abbey Road, or whatever does it for you. That feeling you get when you hear that - that lifting, transformational effect. Imagine that happening with a play while sitting next to 200 other people who are experiencing the same thing. We hope to bring this to you."

If you love the arts, submitting a film is a great way to get involved with KCS. Corporate sponsors are also being sought and tax-deductible donations are always welcome and will be instrumental to KCS’
ability to perform live when it is allowed to do so.
