The 8th Annual deadCENTER Film Festival will take place in downtown Oklahoma City Tonight, Wednesday, June 11 through Sunday, June 15.
deadCENTER will offer screenings of more than 90 films in just five days including Oklahoma films, Sundance award-winning documentaries and everything in between. In addition to the vast selection of quality films, deadCENTER’s high-powered networking events, Panel Series, and legendary parties solidify its designation as the “Top Festival in Oklahoma”.
“deadCENTER was founded – and continues to be run by – filmmakers,” said “Rainbow Around the Sun” producer and deadCENTER chief operating officer Kim Haywood. “Being a filmmaker and running the festival are very similar – the deadlines may be different, but the magic stays the same.”
Back this year by popular demand is deadCENTER’s Panel Series. “The Panel Series is like a two-day film school,” promises program director Melissa Scaramucci. With topics exploring funding, animation, screenwriting, music, and networking, the Panel Series offers those inside and outside the industry new information as well as connections vital to their success.
Screenings begin at most deadCENTER venues on Thursday the 12th and continue throughout the weekend. The downtown venues include the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Harkins Bricktown Theater, Kerr Auditorium, Independent Artists of Oklahoma Gallery, Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library as well as two f*r*e*e outdoor screenings.
The festival kicks off tonight in the street on historic Film Row on Sheridan between Dewey and Lee. Set up your lawn chair and get ready to rock the night away with a F*R*E*E screening of “Rainbow Around the Sun” that begins at 9:30.
“Rainbow Around the Sun” is an Oklahoma City produced rock musical that stars Matthew Alvin Brown as Zachary Blasto, a hard-drinking, talented songwriter and performer who creates vivid musical fantasies in order to avoid dealing with the downward spiral of his personal life. When faced with the impending death of someone he loves, Zach must choose whether to face the loss or surrender fully to the madness of his imaginary musical world. Directed by Kevin Ely & Beau Leland.
All-access passes are available at every venue for $100, screening passes are available for $50, and tickets to individual films are available for just $10. All access passes provide access to every film and every fabulous party!
