Since 2012, Tallgrass Film Association and CreativeRush has partnered together to create Down to the Wire: A 24-Hour Film Race. Every year our filmmakers and community come together to support this industry in our community.
The race takes place annually in June and participants can enter on their own as a Team of ONE or with up to TEN people. Teams have 24 hours to write, produce, shoot and edit a short film that is six minutes or less. All films are required to include The Elements that are randomly selected at the beginning of the race.
Once films are turned in by the 24-hour deadline, a jury will screen each film, and a Top 10 will be showcased at the Orpheum Theatre at 7:00 pm that Sunday night. The Top 10 Showcase will feature a panel of VIP Judges, Awards & Prizes, and a beautiful historic theatre!
