“One of the most forward-thinking festivals in the country, and most thoughtful in terms of curation and filmmaker experience, Tallgrass has a stellar reputation on the festival circuit and tons of fans among both filmmakers and organizers of other festivals,” says MovieMaker editor-in-chief Tim Molloy. “Tallgrass is one of just a handful of entries on our list of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals that was also on our 2023 list of 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee — that means it holds the distinction of being not just a great value and a potential career booster, but also promising a really good time. It epitomizes cool.”
