More than 40 independent feature films from 21 countries flicker across screens at the Tallgrass Film Festival, now entering its ninth year of celluloid celebration. The theme of this year’s festival, Get Twisted, highlights the artistic contributions of independent filmmakers and the unconventional stories they tell, while also nodding to the weather patterns of the Sunflower State and the genius of the curlicue straw. Director Peter Luisi’s unconventional love story The Sandman opens the film-filled fest, and actress Tilda Swinton leads the cast of We Need to Talk About Kevin as they explore the aftermath of a school shooting. Truth-filled tales comprise the fest’s documentary selections, including Never Make it Home, an intimate glimpse into the final tour of country band Split Lip Rayfield. While not included with this Groupon, the fest also hosts a number of special events, including a tribute to actor Elliot Gould and a screenwriting workshop where budding filmmakers can write movies about Elliot Gould.

Though Tallgrass Film Festival sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Tallgrass Film Festival

Founded in 2003, the Tallgrass Film Festival celebrates dramas, comedies, documentaries, and short films from all over the world. Especially focused on the underdogs of moviemaking, the festival invites auteurs to enjoy four days of eager audiences, after-parties, panel discussions, and popcorn fights. The festival has played an integral role in Wichita’s growing appeal to burgeoning directors and screenwriters, as noted by MovieMaker magazine earlier this year.
