GONE is a short feature project by Prestigious Films that was shot entirely in Wichita, KS which features several area production professionals as well as cast.
GONE was created by August Benassi and was produced and directed by Nicholas Barton.
Cast and Crew are invited to the event FREE of charge and are all welcome to bring 1 guest to the event. Public admission is $10 at the door (ALL proceeds will go to support future Wichita Independent Film Projects.)
Doors open at 6:30pm with a wine and cocktail meet and greet. Music will begin at 7pm and the screening will begin at 8pm. GONE is approximately 50 minutes in length. Following the screening there will be a social hour with the cast and crew. Doors will close at 10pm (but I’m sure we’ll find our way down to Old Town for those who wish to join.)
