“We look forward to bringing the best indie films from all over the world to Oklahoma once again,” said Twister Alley’s Creative Director Josh Hope. “We’re so excited to partner with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office to present the Kid Flix Oklahoma Student Film Competition this year. Our goal is to give high school, middle school and elementary students from all over the state an opportunity to show their films on the big screen, and encourage the art of filmmaking and writing to all interested students.”
“Our office was impressed by the professionalism and quality displayed at last year’s inaugural Twister Alley Film Festival and are proud to be a first-year sponsor of Twister Alley and title host of the Kid Flix Oklahoma Student Film Competition,” said OF+MO Director Tava Sofsky. “The festival was willing to collaborate with us to create an Oklahoma component for this year’s event, and we are excited to see creativity fostered at such a young age from our state’s elementary, junior high and high school students.”
