Tallgrass Film Festival

Wichita, Kansas / October 17-21, 2018 / tallgrassfilm.org / S

If you’ve got the chops to make Tallgrass’ selective cut, (roughly eight percent of films submitted to last year’s fest were accepted) your project is in for a feast of treats. This year, the Wichita festival is bumping up the total amount of cash prizes doled out by $4,000. The diverse array of honors is programmed intentionally to reflect Tallgrass’ commitment to inclusion, with awards from low-budget features lacking distribution, to female-driven documentaries.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
