The Twister Alley Film Festival is a premiere indie film festival hosted by filmmakers for filmmakers in Woodward on May 5-7 at the Woodward Arts Theater (818 Main St, Woodward, OK 73801). After screening at hundreds of film festivals, Twister Alley Festival Directors Josh Hope and TJ Treece bring their favorite indie films from around the world back home to Northwest Oklahoma by designing a film festival that provides a setting for both filmmakers and movie fans alike.
I’ve gathered all of the Made in Oklahoma movies and have them listed below, in alphabetical order, with trailers and information if available.
CTRL: A woman wakes to find herself in the middle of a forest, with no memory and a mysterious inclination to kill.
Boomtown: An American Journey focuses on the history of a city known for extremes: Tulsa, Oklahoma. Interwoven into the fabric of the film are graphic details of arguably the nation’s most devastating race riot: the Tulsa Race Riot; the struggles the Muscogee Creek faced during and after the Trail of Tears; a remarkable retrospective of the famed Mother Road, Route 66; the fabulous wealth, architecture, arts & philanthropy from oil and the economic results of relying only on oil speculation.
Dispirited: When Jack begins seeing a ghostly figure around his house, he begins to fear for his sanity. Ultimately, Jack must face his fears and confront the series of events that led him to his current state.
The Foreverlands: A drifter (Ace Denison) finds more than he bargained for when he meets the eccentric Henry Bonneville upon the road. Past and destiny soon collide when Ace realizes that supernatural occurrences are at play and souls at stake, and the mantic Henry Bonneville may or may not be the devil.
Heroes of the Realm: In a world where magic reigns, one tyrant was the undisputed ruler. It’s up to a pizza delivery woman to make the most important delivery of her life.
Kind of Blue: A woman’s life enters a tailspin after the dissolution of her picture-perfect marriage.
Titus Toons: Volume 1: Dive into the Funny and the Weird.
21 Guns: 21 Guns is a story of deep friendship, love and sacrifice in the life of a soldier and his family.
