The OklaHomies Short Film Contest launched March 25, 2020 and winners were announced on April 13, 2020. The films were judged by a panel of nine experienced film producers and directors from Oklahoma. See below for the categories, prizes and rules.
As we all work to get through the COVID-19 pandemic, The OklaHomies was created to give Oklahomans a break from all the stress, with a chance to make a movie from the comfort of home with family and/or roommates. We hope you and your families are all safe and healthy and practicing physical distancing as much as possible. While the contest is closed, we hope you’ll enjoy and watch the film submissions below. They’re sure to touch your hearts and make you laugh.
Even though the contest is over, we encourage you to dive into filmmaking. It’s fun and easy! All you need is a smartphone and a little creativity. Never made a film before? No problem! It’s all about learning new skills and having fun. We’ve gathered a few helpful resources with tutorials to help you create your very own movie magic. Read all about it in our App Suggestions blog.
