MISSION & OBJECTIVE

FRACK FEST, has a limited amount of WAIVERS. Send your request to FrackFest@yahoo.com. This is Oklahoma City’s Underground Multimedia Festival where gaming, graphic novels and motion pictures are mixed and celebrated together. Our mission is to discover new and emerging independent artists and to promote the art and craft of games, graphic novels, and motion pictures by inspiring and bringing works together that culminate in form, technique, or content where similar language is used to tell a story. FRACK FEST recognizes the creative process and endeavors to drill down and unearth outstanding rising talent; nurture and release their gifts through panels, mixers, exhibition, appearance, and display. To present audacious works that inject challenges and transcend expectations allowing new thoughts and ideas to flow... if you suspect your game, graphic novel or motion picture is "underground," it probably is. We are here to cultivate and develop your vision.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The festival offers a unique mix of games, graphic novels and cinema of all lengths and genres, by both sexes, focusing on the diverse “underground” programming. In addition, FRACK FEST will honor the history of independent/underground outlook by presenting tributes and retrospectives of various artists. In previous years, we gave a "Lifetime Achievement Award" to filmmaker Bob Chinn and "Frack Fest's Female Filmmaker Award" to Catya Plate. This year's tributes will be announced shortly.
