Support the Festival
"Tallgrass Film Festival was amazing. It is evident the organizers and volunteers truly love film and do everything in their power to make the screenings wonderful experiences and roll out the "green" carpets for visiting filmmakers! But my favorite thing? The Wichita audience. It was an honor and I'm definitely coming back." - Alonso Mayo - Writer/Director, THE STORY OF LUKE
Are you a film enthusiast? There are several ways that you can support the Tallgrass Film Association:
When Timothy Gruver founded the Tallgrass Film Festival in 2003 his vision was to celebrate film as a community experience. He recognized the possibilities and he recognized that the people of Wichita would create the audiences required for this city to have a world class film festival of its own.We believe that independent film provides an exceptional platform to tell stories that are entertaining and need to be told, and we’ve seen these stories connect our community over the last ten years.
TFA is a non-profit 501(C)(3) arts organization that relies on the support of sponsorship and individual giving – in fact, the majority of our funding is donated by those who recognize the value of supporting and sustaining the arts throughout the region. You all have an active stake in the past and future success of the Tallgrass Film Festival and the future of independent filmmaking in Kansas.
Please consider supporting the Tallgrass Film Association by purchasing a membership, a private screening for your friends or colleagues or a donation. TFA’s programming is made possible by generous help from our community. We thank our supporters for every dollar that is generated, from individual donors to corporate underwriters to the movie-going public. Our sincere thanks to all for the enthusiastic and generous support of our mission.
Your tax-deductible contributions allow us to continue bringing the best of independent cinema from around the world to Wichita and, along with so many other wonderful organizations, enrich our city’s cultural landscape.
“I love Tallgrass and want an excuse to be there every year...so I will keep making films, I guess…Tallgrass is one of my favorite film festivals. It's so rare to get a festival that is so supportive and that brings together an entire community. Great screenings, supportive audiences, wonderful parties, the best people and the sense that the whole city of Wichita is a part of the festival.” – Ishai Setton, Director, THE KITCHEN
