Nashville, Tennessee (March 13, 2013) – Agile Ticketing Solutions is excited to welcome our newest film festival partner, Tallgrass Film Association. Agile Ticketing Solutions will provide Wichita, Kansas based Tallgrass Film Association’s annual film festival, known as the Tallgrass Film Festival (TFF), with ticketing, membership and event management services during its next festival scheduled October 16th through the 20th 2013.
TFA was founded in 2003 by Timothy Gruver, a Wichita native who studied filmmaking at Brigham Young University (often sneaking into Sundance Film Festival parties in Park City to mingle with the stars) before moving to Los Angeles for his first job with Dreamworks Animation, followed by Outfest and the Los Angeles Film Festival.
Tim returned to Wichita in 2002 to found Tallgrass Film Association (known originally as the Wichita Association for Motion Picture Arts.) Tim believed Wichita could be the next Telluride — obvious geographical issues aside — and created the city’s first annual Tallgrass Film Festival, held in October of 2003. Tim amassed a dedicated board of directors and staff, many of whom remain with the organization today and the country’s most Stubbornly Independent film festival was born.
Since then, the festival has become a hallmark of Wichita’s fall event calendar. Tallgrass Film Association’s activities have expanded to also host year-round screenings and events, as well as educational workshops, and a traveling road show.
