DUNCAN — A highlight of the January calendar will take center stage Jan. 24 and Jan. 25 when the Trail Dance Film Festival showcases up-and-coming filmmakers and their work.

Nearly 100 features will be shown on screens at the L.B. and Ola Simmons Community Activities Center and the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center.

Designed to encourage originality and creativity and to promote the film industry in Oklahoma, the festival consistently earns rave reviews and has garnered distinction as one of the Southwest’s premiere film events.

Festivities are open to the public and include entertainment, professional seminars and networking opportunities in addition to honors for quality work at the prestigious end-of-show gala.

It’s a remarkable win-win situation for all concerned.

Films and filmmakers find the spotlight as does the community which gets to share its Simmons Center and Heritage Center with a unique audience.
