The deadCENTER Film Festival, hailed as one of the Top 20 Coolest Film Festivals in the World by MovieMaker Magazine, is an annual independent film showcase that highlights over 100 indie films from across the country.
As Oklahoma’s largest film festival, deadCenter is the best place to see exciting new short films, insightful documentaries, hilarious comedies, hair-raising thrillers, terrifying movies, and the best independent films from around the world and all over Oklahoma.
COVID-19 shifted the way we live, work, and play. Given the success of 2020's all-virtual deadCenter Film Festival, this year's festival is moving forward with a virtual experience for 2021 with the Virtual Festival Pass ($100). This addition will allow their slate of award-winning films, filmmaker panels, celebrity discussions, screenplay readings and film classes to continue to reach people across the country and globe safely.
The name "deadCENTER" refers to Oklahoma City, the "dead center" of the United States, and the "dead center" of the downtown Oklahoma City metro area, where the festival is held. Come celebrate the art of independent film with screenings, panels, workshops and numerous parties planned over five full days in downtown Oklahoma City.
