The Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) hosted the third annual Film Networking and Mentoring Series May 8, 2018 at The Paramount Room in Oklahoma City. This year’s session, titled “How to Start a Film Production Company”, invited audiences to learn about what it takes to start and sustain a production company in Oklahoma from three local filmmakers who have each found a unique platform for producing and distributing their content.
We would like to thank our special guests Ryan Bellgardt of Boiling Point Medialink, Kyle Roberts of Reckless Abandonment Pictureslink and Russ Kirkpatrick of Kirkpatrick & Kinslow Productionslink for their time and unique insight on starting their individual film production companies in Oklahoma. Thank you, also, to The Allie Lauren Projectlink for their incredible performance.

In addition to the festival’s screening and networking events, OF+MO will host a series of free educational panels on Saturday, June 10.
