The 15th annual deadCENTER Film Festival kicked off yesterday and lasts through Sunday. One film making its world premiere at deadCENTER.
That’s the sound from the cabin of an airplane descending into Barrow, Alaska. On board are two Oklahoma filmmakers—Beau Jennings and Bradley Beesley—heading to shoot footage for a documentary that retraces the footsteps of “Oklahoma's Favorite Son” Will Rogers.
Two Oklahomans, that is, flying into Alaska to shoot a scene on the fateful 1935 plane crash of two other Okies—Will Rogers and Wiley Post.
"We made a number of jokes about a couple of Okies flying back to Barrow, Alaska and wondered how smart we were to do so."
The 15th edition of the deadCENTER Film Festival kicks off today, highlighting dozens of independent films —ranging from comedies, dramas, documentaries and short films— from Oklahoma and around the world.
The 14th annual deadCENTER Film Festival launches today in downtown Oklahoma City. Of the 24 feature-length films screening at the festival, ten of those are made in Oklahoma or have an Oklahoma connection.
The 14th annual deadCENTER Film Festival launches on Wednesday, June 11 in downtown Oklahoma City. While the festival is named for being in the "dead center" of Oklahoma City in arguably the "dead center" of America, there has been some confusion in the past that it's a horror film festival.
Well, since the festival falls on Friday the 13th for the first time this year, deadCENTER is embracing the name confusion and celebrating the horror genre.
