Tallgrass Film Festival co-director of programming Nick Pope will present the free workshop "Indie Cinema Appreciation" from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday at House of Schwan, 3636 N. Comotara.
Pope studied film criticism, history and production at the University of Kansas. He has been with the Tallgrass Film Festival since its inception in 2002.
He plans to take a look at some of the most influential independent film directors of the past 20 years, how they got their start and what they've done since then. He'll also take a look at this year's Academy Award nominees for best director and examine their careers.
The event is sponsored by Tallgrass Brewing Company. Free beverages will be served. Limited seating is available; reserve a place by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
