Edmond filmmakers will take center stage as deadCENTER Film Festival rolls into town for a one-night festival from 6 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at Kickingbird Cinema, 1225 E. Danforth Rd.

DCFF is Oklahoma’s largest film festival, recognized as one of the “Top 20 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” according to MovieMaker magazine.

“Over the past 15 years, deadCENTER has seen independent Oklahoma filmmaking rise to the next level, and we’re proud to share their work in an environment that encourages a dialogue between filmmaker and audience,” said Lance McDaniel, executive director for deadCENTER Film Festival. “Edmond 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.”

There will be three screenings, all featuring filmmakers with an Edmond connection. Following each screening will be a Q&A session with the director.

Edmond resident Kyle Roberts kicks the night off at 6 p.m. with his film, “The Posthuman Project.” The family-friendly, teen superhero movie won ‘Best Oklahoma Film’ at the 2014 deadCENTER Film Festival, was an official selection at Comic-Con International: San Diego in July, and will screen Oct. 24 at Orlando Film Festival and Oct. 31 at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in Los Angeles.

At 8 p.m., there will be a shorts program featuring films by Edmond filmmaker Bunee Tomlinson and Edmond native Brent Ryan Green, founder of Los Angeles-based Toy Gun Films.

Army of Frankensteins,” a Civil War era sci-fi/horror flick directed by Edmond-based director Ryan Bellgardt, closes out the night at 10 p.m.

The Posthuman Project
The Posthuman Project
The Posthuman Project is the feature film debut of Emmy Award-winning music video director and NewsOK videographer Kyle Roberts.
Denny Burke is finally about to graduate high school. Senior year has been one bad thing after another: a broken leg, a broken heart, and — worst of all — a broken home.
With four of his closest friends, Denny goes on one last rock-climbing trip to prove he’s ready to start his adult life… On their trip the five teens receive a genetic boost beyond anything they’d ever imagined. Denny is soon faced with the first big decision of his adult life: does he give up these powers and stay a normal teenager, or does he keep them…and graduate from the human race?

Army of Frankensteins
Army of Frankensteins
Produced on-location in Oklahoma, marks the feature film debut of Ryan Bellgardt, the Emmy Award-winning co-host of KAUT Freedom 43’s The Two Movie Guys.

A mad scientist ruptures the space and time continuum and sends an army of Frankensteins back to fight the Civil War.

After a failed attempt to propose to his girlfriend, Alan Jones is beaten to within an inch of his life by a street gang and taken to a mysterious lab where Dr. Tanner Finski and his kid genius assistant perform horrible experiments on him hoping to re-animate a Frankenstein. The experiments lead to a hole being ripped in space and time, manifesting an Army of Frankensteins from hundreds of parallel universes and sending them all back to the 19th century, directly into the heart of a bloody battle between the North and South.

History will never be the same.
