Bison Bison Film Festival just days away!
Ponca City Now - April 5, 2016 11:35 am
The time is near for film lovers to celebrate with the second BisonBison Film Festival.
The festival will cover two evenings at The Poncan Theatre this weekend.
It opens at 7 p.m. Friday, April 8, with movies more suited for an adult audience.
The short movies were crafted by filmmakers from across the mid-America region and include films from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Arkansas.
Arranged in blocks of similar genre, Friday’s first showings are slated as “Horror with a Slice of Suspense and Humor,” with five short films ranging from zombies in love to the terror of insomnia.
The second block of short films is classified as “Artsy Music Videos.” These four short movies are artful takes on a song.
The last grouping is “Films with an Edge.” These four movies are intense, humorous and edgy. Each group of movies is followed by a brief question-and-answer session with filmmakers.
The second screening will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 9, with movies that are more appropriate for a PG-13 audience.
The entertaining shorts include “Movie Magic,” “The Adventures of Kimberly Smith,” “Atelophobia,” and “Wrung.”
The second block of movies are thought-provoking shorts titled “Better Things,” “Waiting,” and “If Death Were Kind.”
Both groups of movies will be followed by a brief question-and-answer session with the filmmakers. The festival concludes with the presentation of the three Awards of Excellence.
