The Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) and Studio Oklahoma were pleased to return to Park City in attendance of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival to connect with filmmakers, industry delegates and studio executives to promote Oklahoma’s crew, infrastructure and incentive program. In partnership with the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) Beyond Cinema Media Studio, OF+MO was able to host the annual Meet Oklahoma event at the Meyer Gallery, a high-profile Main Street venue located in the heart of festival activity and traffic. This year’s event was filled to capacity and provided our staff and partners with the opportunity to engage with clients including filmmakers from CNN, Discovery Channel and independent producers.
In addition to our event, OF+MO was able to utilize the festival to promote our state’s incentive program to filmmakers at a variety of panels and screenings, including Producer Jay Van Hoy (“American Honey”, “Moonlight”) actor Kevin Bacon (“Footloose”, “Apollo 13”) and Writer/Director Macon Blair and actors Elijah Wood and Melanie Lynskey of the festival’s Grand Jury Prize winner “I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore”. OF+MO also met with Director/Producer Barack Goodman of the documentary “Oklahoma City”, which chronicles the events leading up to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building and made its world-premiere at Sundance. “Oklahoma City” screened at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and Circle Cinema on February 3 and made its national television premiere on OETA on February 7.
OF+MO wishes to thank our Studio Oklahoma partners for making our attendance at this event possible: Dunlap Codding, The Paramount on Film Row, Visit Enid, The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture, the Bartlesville CVB, the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce, the City of Guthrie, deadCENTER Film Festival and AFCI Beyond Cinema.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR STUDIO OKLAHOMA SPONSORS!
