2016 EMERGING PROGRAMMER APPRENTICESHIP
Calling all young filmmakers and film enthusiasts!
Apply for the 2016 Emerging Programmer Apprenticeship and become part of
the Tallgrass Film Festival programming team. Visit tallgrassfilmfest.com for more
information about the program.
Student programmers (high school and younger) learn about how festivals are
critiqued and programmed as they review independent films created by their
peers from around the world. They are also tasked with fostering appreciation
for film and promoting awareness of the Tallgrass Film Association’s events and
educational opportunities amongst their peer groups.
The Emerging Programmer Apprentices play an integral role in selecting the Joel
Fein Emerging Filmmaker Program (films made by those 18 and younger), as well
as Smallgrass, the festival’s family-friendly program. They also serve on the jury
that awards the Best Emerging Filmmaker Short Award from the Joel Fein
Emerging Filmmaker Program.
