Kansas City PBS Celebrates Local Filmmakers in New Season of ‘Art House’

Kansas City PBS is thrilled to announce the fifth season of Art House with filmmaker and host John McGrath. This digital series from Kansas City PBS will post new episodes every other Thursday online at kansascitypbs.org/arthouse starting Thursday, May 16.   

“This new season of Art House will highlight some of Kansas City’s most impressive filmmakers making a wave in our regional film community. Kansas City PBS is proud to create a platform where we can highlight these artists and invite viewers to support their work,” said Kliff Kuehl, Kansas City PBS president and CEO. 

This season of Art House features conversations with local filmmakers dissecting the aesthetics, theory and symbolism behind their latest work. McGrath will sit down with Jacob and Ben Burghart to learn about their debut feature, Headcount. Later in the season, McGrath chats with Ryan Lovell about his short documentary Rare Enough, a short film about his friend’s battle with brain cancer. 

“I am super excited to begin the fifth season of Art House. One of the guiding themes of Art House is to show what an amazing film scene we have here in Kansas City and to give a voice to each filmmaker’s unique story,” said McGrath, Art House creator and Kansas City PBS multimedia producer. 

Art House provides a platform for local filmmakers like no other. Learn more about Kansas City’s vibrant film community with Art House, publishing new episodes every other Thursday of the month on Kansas City PBS. Visit kansascitypbs.org/arthouse to learn more.
