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. We have opportunities every week in Wichita!

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 without them. From students to retirees, if you’re interested in movies, community events and are stubbornly independent, we encourage you to discover the possibilities.
