The Tallgrass Film Association has announced that the 18th Annual Tallgrass Film Festival will go virtual this October, with extended dates and online film screenings, Q&As, parties, and other events. The original five-day event will be expanded to ten days from October 16 to 25, 2020.
The decision to go virtual was not easy, but we’re certain this is the best choice for the safety and well-being of our volunteers and staff, visiting filmmakers, audience, sponsors and our community as a whole. By expanding the length of our virtual festival, we’re giving everyone more opportunities to see even more films than they could before.Nick Pope, Director of Programming
Tallgrass will be partnering with their existing ticketing system, Elevent, along with Cinesend to provide their audience with a seamless virtual festival experience – accessible conveniently across most digital devices and Smart TVs. While the festival may look different this year, the Tallgrass team is hard at work to make sure it feels as close to past events as possible.
In addition to film screening and social events, Tallgrass will continue to offer educational roundtables and industry panels, which will be available free to the public. More detailed information about the festival, including the films to be screened, special guests, and full pricing packages will be announced in the coming weeks. The last-call deadline to submit films for consideration to this year’s festival is July 24, 2020.
