Doc Sunback Film Festival

The festival is named after the local pioneer veterinarian, Dr. Willis O. “Doc” Sunback, who was born in 1879. He was a good doctor & was even trusted to help people with their ailments when a medical doctor wasn’t available. He lived to be 81 and is still personally remembered by some of the folks from Mulvane.

The Doc Sunback Film Festival began in 2015 with three founding members, Nancy Farber Mottola, Kenneth Linn, & Sheri Kaufman-Marsh. This small band of over-achievers screened 500+ films and with the help of volunteers put together a film festival & art crawl that spanned 2 days, in 3 theaters, 2 art venues, and featured over 100 films and 12 local artists.

The 2018 Doc Sunback Film Festival took place on June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, & 24th, 2018. We showed about 2 hours of films on Thursday evening, including the independent film American Folk. Films were shown all day Friday in two locations and all day Saturday in three locations. The Awards Ceremony was well attended on Saturday night before we headed outside to show films in Cobb Park. We finished things up on Sunday with some great films at the Pix theater.

We are already working on next year’s festival which will be held in June 2019.
