OF+MO Celebrates Six Years at Sundance
OF+MO proudly returns to Park City, Utah, for the 2019 Sundance Film Festival where to host the 6th annual Oklahoma Film and Music Event featuring live music from Oklahoma artist Levi Parham. We look forward to connecting with the international audience of filmmakers to promote Oklahoma’s incentives, locations and overall industries. Additionally, in conjunction with Entertainment Partners (EP), OF+MO will host a filmmaker panel featuring Director Martha Stephens of “To The Stars” – a feature film produced in Oklahoma celebrating its world premiere at Sundance. Thank you to our Studio Oklahoma partners for making our attendance at this event possible: The Cherokee Nation, Grand Casino’s Play It Loud, VisitEnid, Castle Row and Beyond Cinema. Connect with us at Sundance! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“To The Stars” is the second consecutive Oklahoma-produced film to be an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, following the world-premiere of “Wildlife” in 2018. Much like its predecessor, “To The Stars” was primarily shot in the City of Enid, as well as the surrounding region, utilized the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program and created over 175 local jobs. The film stars Kara Hayward (“Moonrise Kingdom”), Liana Liberato (“The Best of Me”), two-time Emmy Award-winner Tony Hale (HBO’s “Veep”), Malin Akerman (“Watchmen”), Shea Whigham (“Take Shelter”), Jordana Spiro (“Ozark”), Lucas Zumann (“20th Century Women”), and Adelaide Clemens (“Rectify”).
