“I can count on one hand the number of people we’ve brought in who didn’t have a good time,” Fred Andrews said of the Kansas City Filmmakers Jubilee. “We’re here to help the filmmaker. That’s not to say we’re ignoring the regular moviegoer, but when you make a filmmaker happy, he opens up. He shares more with festivalgoers.” Andrews died on Feb. 24.
