Sunny Side Up Film Festival Headed To The Goddard Center in Ardmore, OK
Hollywood film producer Gray Frederickson, who is best known for producing The Godfather movies, Apocalypse Now, The Outsiders, Ladybugs and UHV among other films, will be presenting two special awards.
If you describe something as "sunny side up", you might mean it's cheerful and bright. That's what the festival's atmosphere might be like, especially with The Festival's Emcee being the one and only Mark Staggs, a Comic Celebrity impersonator. This film festival, will be known for having a "Comic Emcee" annually.
The film festival is for indie film and screenplay competition. It will feature multiple screenings, shorts, features, documentaries, animation, westerns, sci-fi, horror, comedy, filmmaker Q&A's and more!
Hollywood film producer Gray Frederickson, and his lovely wife Karen will attend the Award Show on Sunday March 25th. Gray will be presenting the first "SSUFF - The Gray Frederickson Award" to winners of "Best Oklahoma Made Film", and "Best 1st Time Filmmaker".
