Volunteering at Tallgrass

We truly couldn’t pull off our festival without the support of our dedicated volunteers. Join the team! No filmmaking skills required.

An essential part of our organization.

Whether they are building décor for our parties, selling tickets at the box office, chauffering filmmakers or screening films, we could not accomplish our year-round mission with them. From high school students to senior citizens, if you’re interested in movies, community events and are stubbornly independent, we encourage you to discover the possibilities.

Volunteers are needed for the following positions

• Runners
• Ballot Counters
• Production Assistants
• Projection Room Assistants
• Print Trafficking Assistants

• Special Event Greeters/Bartenders (must be 21+)
• Special Event Production Set-up/Breakdown
• Visiting Filmmaker/Hospitality Drivers
• Ticket sellers and box office help

Volunteer Benefits Include

• Access to Wichita premieres of some of the best independent films from around the world (You’ll earn a movie pass for every shift you work!)
• A one-of-a-kind Tallgrass t-shirt
• Food & beverage during shifts, plus access to our volunteer lounge
• Being a part of a community of film loving Wichitans who love supporting local art
• But most of all, bragging rights for playing an intergral role in the country’s most Stubbornly Independent film festival.
