The success of the inaugural, sold-out K+S New York 2009 festival has led to K+S festivals in Washington (D.C.), Houston, North Adams (Mass.), Amsterdam, London, Kerala (India), Liverpool, and Portland (Ore.), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Rio (Brazil). The festival has presented world premieres, U.S. premieres, speaker series featuring soccer celebrities, writers, and directors from around the world, several literary readings, and photo exhibits for thousands of festival attendees.
