The Circle Cinema Film Festival and 90th Birthday Celebration was a huge success with sold-out shows, insightful discussion with special guests (including actors Tim Blake Nelson, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Heather   Langenkamp, Ryan Merriman, Mary Kay Place, former actress and Tulsa philanthropist Peggy Dow Helmerich, and more), and even an impromptu song from Gary Busey made it a week to remember. 

Special thanks to The Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts, and Culture and the Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts for generously funding the event. Community partners included -TV, Quik Trip, The Tulsa Voice, The Church Studio, Tulsa Project Theatre, The Tulsa Historical Society and Museum, Whitty Books, Topeca Coffee, Native Crossroads and deadCenter Film Festival.

All of the special birthday wishes were received from Mayor G.T. Bynum, Bishop Carlton Pearson, director Sterlin Harjo, and more can be found online at Many of the panels and Q&As were recorded by videographer Leo Evans as well.
