I attended Enid’s Fly Film Festival https://filmfreeway.com/FLYFilmFestival yesterday. The eighth for Enid, but a first for me. I went with friends on Saturday morning to Enid’s Gaslight Theater and it was cool and comfortable inside the theatre. Drinks and snacks were available and there was plenty of seating.
I love to support the local arts and yesterday was so much fun. I was only there for the morning films, but they were great. It seemed each one was better than the last. I saw short independent films, and you could tell by the audience if the film company was present. I was unable to stay for the longer feature-length films though I wanted to. I watched the credits as they rolled by and recognized at least one writer.
These films are created over the year and then entered for a contest. The categories were Best Short Film, Best Oklahoma Short Film, Best Student Film, Best Documentary, and Best Feature Length Film. I wasn’t present at the Awards Ceremony and didn’t see who won, but I also didn’t get to see all the nominees. Maybe next year.
The film community gathers for parties after the day of films and I’m sure they earned the right to party after a year’s worth of work on films.
I look forward to next year and spending more time at Enid’s 9th Fly Film Festival.
