Tallgrass Film Festival

posted by Nell Minow

I am thrilled to have been asked to attend the Tallgrass Film Festival in Wichita, Kansas, later this month and especially looking forward to spending time with my beloved B98 buddies, Brett and Tracy and am forever grateful to them for making it possible for me to be there.

I am very excited about the line-up of screenings, including a preview look of a work in progress, the documentary “What’s the Matter with Kansas,” based on the best-selling book by Thomas Frank about shifting political priorities and coalitions. The film features former Kansas Congressman and Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman, who now serves as the head of the Motion Picture Association of America. And I am really looking forward to introducing the family film program, featuring “Alice Upside Down.”

The program is filled with enticing choices from exotic international releases to heartland American stories. I can’t wait.

    This will be my 6th year attending Tallgrass Film Festival…if you love film, YOU MUST BE HERE! We’re thrilled to have “Movie Mom” on our program and you’ll be blown away by the quality of excellent independent films you’ll see, the venue (the Warren Theatre is unbelievably POSH), the galas, the friendly people!!! Mark your calendars for Oct. 23-26 to be in Wichita, Kansas for Tallgrass!
