Now Accepting Applications for the 2021 Emerging Programmer Apprenticeship Program

We’re pleased to announce our 2021 Emerging Programmer Apprenticeship is now accepting applications. 

The program is open to Wichita area students ages 13 to 18.

Our 2021 EPAs will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with professionals in the film industry, covering a wide range of topics including film criticism, directing, producing, screenwriting, audio production, lighting, camera technique, video editing, and more.

Along with these interactive classes, our EPAs will be provided hands-on learning opportunities, including:

  • Screening and reviewing more than 125 movies submitted by their peers to the 19th Annual Tallgrass Film Festival (Oct. 20-24). These reviews will help shape the Joel Fein Emerging Filmmakers Shorts Program at the festival, as the program will be curated with the assistance of our EPAs.
  • Conducting their own internal Film Race.

Successful students will receive an all-access TALLPass in exchange for their participation in the program, as well as an additional all-access pass for a parent or guardian.
