We are happy to announce that EDDIE has accepted an invitation to headline the deadCenter Film Festival. The entire production team is humbled and excited to be given such a huge honor. The deadCENTER film festival has supported our team at 1577 Productions so much over the years. Whether it was with the short films that we had done in the past, or if it was through the amazing networking opportunities that have come about due to the festival. deadCENTER has changed the way people view Oklahoma film, and we are proud to be a part of that.

OKC’s deadCENTER Film Festival ‘Leading with EDDIE’

From an EDDIE film standpoint, this news couldn’t come at a better time. The question we are constantly asked is “when can we see the film?” Now, people who have supported and been with us from day 1 can get a sneak peak at the film through the festival experience. The festival will take place June 11th – 21st.

“This is the 20th Anniversary of the festival, and it is slated to be the best ever.” Executive Director Lance McDaniel said,”It’ll be 20 shorts programs, 20 features, 20 classes. We’re going to have reunions of classic Oklahoma films. … All of that’s going to happen. But it’s all going to be about what’s happening virtually.”

“If you’re a film enthusiast, this will probably be the best year ever because you will actually see more films than you’ve ever seen. You have 10 days to look at them whenever you want. … We’re still working on how do we make it super, super fun when the world’s changed around us.”

Due to Covid-19 festival organizers are working hard to make it a fantastic experience for the audience including online screenings and possibly a Drive-In option (which would be amazing). We will be sure and keep everyone up to date on what is happening surrounding the film, as it is currently out to distributors. We look forward to sharing news of its platform home soon!
