BisonBison expands to two (two!) days
Ponca City Now - March 28, 2016 11:15 am
The second BisonBison Film Festival has expanded to two days to include more of the top films submitted.
The short movies were crafted by filmmakers from across the mid-America region and include films from Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Arkansas.
The festival opens at 7 p.m. Friday, April 8, at The Poncan Theatre, with movies more suited for an adult audience.
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.

One of the winners from the 2014 BisonBison Film Festival went on to win a regional Academy Award. Come see these films and meet the filmmakers before they become famous, then you can say, “I knew them when.”
The BisonBison Film Festival is a 501(c)3 organization. Its mission is to recognize and showcase the work of student filmmakers enrolled in academic programs in the six state mid-America region of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas.
