2007 Tulsa Overground Film Festival: Call For Entries
I just stumbled across the Tulsa Overground Film Festival for the first time even though the fest is entering it’s 10th year. Looking over the lineups from years past, it appears to be a nice fit for the type of fests we cover here at the Underground Film Journal. Plus, as far as I can tell from a quick Google search, it’s the only “overground” fest out there.
Official dates for the 10th anniversary fest haven’t been set yet, but it they’re planning to run it sometime in November or December. One of the reasons for the delay is that co-founder and co-director Todd Lincoln is busy directing his first feature film, Hack/Slash, which is based on the comic book about a girl who travels the country killing serial killers.
There also isn’t exactly a deadline date for entries, but TOFF’s MySpace page says they’re open until early November and just ignore the dates set on the fest’s official site. This is also a “shorts only” fest, so only submit them. Here’s their mission statement:
It’s an all ages, all formats, all styles, all genres, anything goes showcase of the most innovative work from around the world. A cinematic grab bag of first-time filmmakers, student directors, professional lensers, and big name auteurs. A festival for the people, by the people.
Again, just ignore the dates on the official site’s submission page and get your shorts in by November.
