It’s More Than Movies

In addition to screenings of independent films from around the world, The Tallgrass Film Festival features a variety of other events, including galas, afterparties, Q&A sessions with filmmakers and more. So whether you love films, parties, or cultural experiences, Tallgrass is a great place to be!

Educational Events

In addition to these activities, the festival highlights a lot of educational opportunities. Admission to Tallgrass's Educational programming is FREE and open to the public.  Events like these that make Tallgrass a great place for students, aspiring filmmakers, and more.

It’s International
