deadCenter Film Festival

at Downtown Oklahoma City
 
 

MovieMaker magazine has referred to it as one of the 20 "Coolest" festivals in the world. It's the deadCenter Film Festival, which is the largest of its kind in the state of Oklahoma. The name refers to the festival's geographic location; Oklahoma City, and downtown OKC in particular, is known as the "dead center" of the United States. Over the festival's 15-year tenure, thousands of films have been screened, from slasher movies and heavy dramas to slapstick comedies and thought-provoking documentaries. All types of filmmakers are involved, including fresh-faced film students and the likes of Spike Jonze, who opened deadCenter in 2010. All-access passes are available for $150, or individual tickets can be purchased for specific films 20 minutes prior to screening. deadCenter is a 501(c) (3) non-profit that's made possible each year by the generous donations of supporters of the independent arts in Oklahoma.

The best way to experience deadCenter is to register for the All Access Pass. With an All Access Pass, you get priority entrance to every film, party, panel and special event starting with the Opening Night Party on the rooftop of the Museum of Art at 5:30pm on Thursday, June 8, 2017. At the festival, All Access pass holders are allowed into the theater first and the remaining seats are sold to individual ticket buyers. So, you must be in line at least 30 minutes before each film to get priority access. Seats are not guaranteed.

Individual tickets to specific films are not available online or by phone. They are only available starting 20 minutes before each screening, after all All Access pass holders have been seated. Individual tickets, when available, are $10 each. Because All Access passholders get admitted first, it’s recommended that individual ticket buyers get in line as early as possible for their desired screening(s).
