Love movies? Love soccer? You’ll love the Kicking + Screening Soccer/Football Film Festival, an annual series of events that brings together soccer and film enthusiasts to celebrate the beautiful game.
K+S is dedicated to showcasing the best soccer films in the world to bring attention to this under-appreciated, emerging film genre. The festival’s roots can be traced to April 2009, when a blind date between two fervent soccer and film fans quickly evolved — in less than two years — into a global festival celebrating soccer culture.
This year K+S takes place in a couple weeks in Portland, OR and then in late September in jolly ol’ London. Check it out, read about it, and by gosh if you’re able, grab a bucket of popcorn and see a flick!
