The star of this week’s video is Oklahoma’s largest film festival, deadCENTER! Director of Programming, Kim Haywood, and Artistic Director, Lance McDaniel, talk about the festival, what people can expect from attending it, and what’s new with this year’s event. Plus filmmaker, Jacob Leighton Burns shares his favorite part about deadCENTER. The festival runs from June 8th through the 12th.

While at the festival, be sure catch my feature documentary, District Up! Showing one night only at in the Plaza District on Friday, June 10th at 8pm!

If you wish to help Uncovering Oklahoma, consider becoming a patron for advanced and exclusive content. There’s bonus content like the full length, uncut interview with Jacob Burns, in which we talk about his movie, Electric Nostalgia (which you should also go see), as we get rained on part way through the interview.

While this week’s video is about the festival, to learn more about the Made in Oklahoma movies, read my deadCENTER Q&A sessions with the filmmakers. Follow me on Twitter and Facebook because I will be challenging all filmmakers I meet at the festival to pitch their film in 30 second videos! I did that last year and it was a huge success and everyone loved the videos.

Thank you for watching!
