Itâ€™s good to hear that the Tallgrass Film Festival will be held after all this year, in late October, albeit in a shortened format playfully dubbed “Shortgrass” by organizers.
Local filmmaker Tim Gruver started the festival in 2003 despite predictable local nay-saying, but his sudden death this summer left the future of the event in doubt.
Tallgrass has too much promise to let it wither away. With aggressive new leadership, the festival could still develop into a strong cultural offering for the city. Gruver had the right vision; now it is up to others to bring it to fruition.
