The deadCenter Film Festival opened Wednesday with a party at the Chesapeake Boathouse and a screening of the documentary “Marley” and continued tonight with a showing of the film “Somebody Up There Likes Me,” starring “Parks and Recreation’s” Nick Offerman and his Oklahoma-bred wife Megan Mullally.
More than 100 films from around the world and all over Oklahoma will be featured at this year’s festival, so if you missed “Somebody Up There Likes Me,” don’t worry, there’s much more to see at deadCenter 2012.
From Sundance favorites “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” and “The Queen of Versailles” to celebrity-hosted screenings from James Marsden, Famke Janssen and Chris Kattan to Oklahoma-made films from Bartlesville, Shawnee, Vici, Pauls Valley and Edmond, deadCenter 2012 offers a diverse selection of films for all moviegoers.
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art will serve as the official headquarters for the festival and will screen films throughout the festival, with several screening locations throughout the downtown area. Harkins Bricktown Theaters will host several feature films, and IAO Gallery on historic Film Row will feature the popular short film programs. The recently renovated Myriad Gardens Grand Lawn will host the festival’s second outdoor screening on Saturday, June 10. The Downtown Library will host a Free Kids Fest on Saturday morning and a Sundance human rights film, “Granito” on Saturday afternoon.
