Bare Bones has been plugged as “the Friendliest Film Festival” by the many filmmakers and patrons who return year after year. In Muskogee, visitors get that charming small-town experience with classic car shows, local music performances and a relaxed neighborly vibe. The festival showcases movies with budgets under $1 million, documentaries, music videos and live screenplay readings at the Art Deco style Roxy Theatre.

When to submit: By mid-December
