Planet Terror

We are sorry to announce that Rose McGowan, this year’s recipient of the Ad Astra Award tonight at the Scottish Rite Theater, has cancelled all upcoming public appearances due to compounding factors surrounding recent revelations in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case. A video message from McGowan has been posted on Tallgrass Film Association’s social media platforms. “While we’re disappointed that Rose cannot be here with us in person, we understand that her well being is the priority. We support her and our thoughts are with her. We’ll seize this opportunity to amplify her message and celebrate all the women filmmakers with works here at the 15th annual festival,” said Tallgrass Creative Director Lela Meadow-Conner. “The whole world is now aware, in large part due to Rose’s efforts, about the rampant sexual harassment within the entertainment industry, and so in her honor, we have pulled together a panel of women filmmakers who will be attending the festival with there films.
