deadCenter Film Festival

at Downtown Oklahoma City

Get ready to celebrate 20 years of deadCenter film! MovieMaker magazine named it one of “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” in 2018. The deadCenter Film Festival is the largest of its kind in 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 20-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 now for half price, or individual tickets can be purchased for specific films prior to screening for $10. deadCenter is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit that's made possible each year by the generous donations of supporters of the independent arts in Oklahoma.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, deadCenter is moving its slate of award-winning films, filmmaker panels, celebrity discussions, screenplay readings and film classes online using the latest streaming and community engagement technologies.

The best way to experience deadCenter is to go for the All Access Pass. Pass holders get to look forward to pop-up drive-in movie experiences and more! Check out the impressive 2020 film schedule here.
