The Tallgrass Film Festival is pleased to announce the feature film selected for its Gala and Thursday Night Spotlight screenings. “This year’s gala selections contain elements of deception mixed with imitation and obsession – an exciting combination of influential cinema and new voices,” said Co-Programming Director Nick Pope.
“As we embark on our 12th festival, Tallgrass is privileged and thrilled to be able to curate and share these theatrical experiences with our community.” For the first time, the Stubbornly Independent Gala was selected by a jury of entertainment industry professionals.
Tickets are available online beginning September 27 and in person October 13. A VIP TALLPass gains admittance to all Galas, after-parties and screenings and is only $185 through September, 30th.
