EDMOND, Okla. (Oct. 13, 2014) â€“ Edmond will be home to the deadCENTER Film Festival this Wednesday, October 15, featuring screenings from Edmond filmmakers from 6 â€“ 11:30 pm at Kickingbird Cinema, 1225 W. Danforth Rd.
DCFF is Oklahomaâ€™s largest film festival, recognized as one of the â€œTop 20 Coolest Film Festivals in the Worldâ€ according to MovieMaker magazine.
â€œOver the past 15 years, deadCENTER has seen independent Oklahoma filmmaking rise to the next level, and weâ€™re proud to share their work in an environment that encourages a dialogue between filmmaker and audience,â€ said Lance McDaniel, executive director for deadCENTER Film Festival. â€œEdmond is the perfect place to showcase these locally-made films that are pushing the envelope both technically and narratively, and are now gaining international exposure.â€
Edmond-native Kyle Roberts kicks the night off with his film, â€œThe Posthuman Project,â€ beginning at 6:00 p.m. This family friendly superhero flick won Best Oklahoma Film at deadCENTER, and is an Official Selection of San Diego Comic Con and Stan Leeâ€™s Comikaze.
The second screening at 8:00 p.m. pairs the short films of local directors Brent Ryan Green and Bunee Tomlinson. Both filmmakers have had several films in the festival, and will be in attendance to discuss their creative growth through the years in a Q&A following the screening.
â€œArmy of Frankensteinsâ€ closes out the night at 10 p.m. with a B-movie bang. This unique film by Ryan Bellgardt blends sci-fi, historical fiction, and classic monster movies into one colossal fun time.
Filmmakers will be attendance for all three screenings. Admission is available at the door and good for all screenings: $9.25 for adults, $7.25 for senior citizens, $7.50 for students 12 years and older, and $7.00 for children.
