The Great Plains Film Festival is a biennial event held at the University of Nebraska in the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center. With the rise in popularity of the Omaha sound and with Alexander Payne shining his quirky spotlight on the state, Nebraska might be the next hotbed of American creativity. This year’s Great Plains Film Festival may shed some light on whether it’s a hotbed or a flash in the pan.
