Objective

We champion the struggling independent Auteur who literally does it all or who gathers a close team who contributes what's needed to get their movie make. By having in attendance, mediamakers from all across the U.S. and Canada and by bringing in experienced and award winning directors, screenwriters, actors, cinematographers and stunt professionals to conduct workshops and discussion groups, thus sharing their knowledge, we are paving the way for an independent movie explosion in Oklahoma.

This 4-day film festival will primarily focus on the Screenwriter and the need for making transitions. ScreenWriter-Director, Actor-ScreenWriter, Actor-Producer, Cinematographer-Editor, are just a few of the hyphenates we encounter.
