Calling filmmakers

NORMAN — Filmmakers are invited to submit films for review for the 14th annual deadCENTER Film Festival scheduled for June 11-15 in downtown Oklahoma City.

Films will be selected in the following categories: narrative feature, documentary feature, narrative short, documentary short, student film, Oklahoma film and short screenplay.

Submissions can be made online at deadcenterfilm.org. The early bird deadline is Nov. 30.

Entry fees vary based on the type of submission: $40 for narrative and documentary features, $25 for narrative and documentary shorts and Oklahoma films, $20 for college films and screenplays. High school films are free to submit.

From comedies and documentaries to horror films and dramas, deadCENTER selects a broad slate of films that cater to all tastes.

The festival added a distribution forum in 2012 to help filmmakers connect with sales agents and distributors.

DeadCENTER Film Festival, named for its location in Oklahoma City, is Oklahoma’s largest film festival and is one of the “Top 20 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” and among the “Top 50 Festivals Worth the Entry Fee,” according to MovieMaker magazine.

DCFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, providing yearround events to support its mission to promote, encourage and celebrate the independent film arts.
