Skillfully set between t...

Introducing "Music Docs": Discovering the Best Music Documentaries of 2011 this August.

Back in 2010, the KahBang Film Festival featured the Maine Premeire of the Maynard James Keenan documentary "Blood Into Wine" to rave reviews, and with that, the KahBang Film in competition category "Music Docs" was born. KahBang has always strived to discover up and coming talent in both music and film, so what better way to celebrate that notion than showcase the undeniably fascinating stories of our favorite musical groups on the silver screen. 2011 has already seen a ver...

KahBang Film Festival

The KahBang Film Festival is one portion of the KahBang Music-Art-Film Festival, happening this August 5th - 13th 2011, in downtown Bangor, Maine. KahBang is not just another festival. It is a brand. A brand built around discovering "the next big thing" in the arts and entertainment worlds.

The KahBang Film Festival is 9 days of films that we think are cool. Some are cool for different reasons, others are cool for the same reasons, while still others are both at the same time. If it makes us laugh, if it makes us think, if someone blackmailed us to screen it, we share it with you. If you don't like it, we'll give you a refund (please note: The KahBang Festival does not offer refunds).

At the end of the day, we love films, we love filmmakers with vision, and we love Milk Duds. Our festival pays tribute to the iconic artists, the emerging auteur and even the epic fail. We hope you will join us this August and discover "cool" the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
