Tulsa Goes to the Movies: It's the 2019 Circle Cinema Film Festival

Aired on Wednesday, July 10th.

After debuting last year as part of the Circle Cinema's 90th birthday bash, the Circle Cinema Film Festival is back in 2019 with a rich assortment of films as well as various art, music, and cultural experiences. Our guests are Clark Wiens, a founder of the Circle Cinema Foundation, and Chuck Foxen, the film programmer at the Circle. They tell us about many of the films and special guests who come to Tulsa as a part of this gala festival, which happens from the 11th through the 15th. Highlights include "Bluebird" (2019), "Terlton" (2019), "Cole Justice" (1989), "Juice: How Electricity Explains the World" (2019), "American Heretics: Politics of the Gospel" (2018), and "Okies in Silent Film" (a series of silent one-reelers from the 1920s). Note that a full schedule of events and screenings for this festival can be found here. Also on our show today, as the summer-travel season rolls on, commentator Mark Darrah is thinking about roadside signage in Oklahoma -- both then and now.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
