When someone is hurt or a victim of crime, they are often asked to forgive, a practice that often has positive consequences.
But in the Oklahoman’s case, the film has not had that benefit.
In a move that could help the film, the Oklahoma film director and director of Oklahomans First, Jennifer Jones, has been invited to give a talk on forgiveness.
Jones, who is an Oklahoan native and has been director of the Okanagan Film Festival since 2009, is one of a number of people who have been invited by the festival to give talks on forgiveness at its annual awards ceremony.
Oklahoma Film Festival President, Jonathon Moseley, said Jones was invited to speak on forgiveness as part of the festival’s Diversity in Film and TV series, which aims to showcase diverse voices in film.
The Oklahomean film festival is one part of a growing trend among film festivals to have diversity speakers, Mosely said.
He said the diversity in film and television programs at the festival was one of the reasons the festival decided to invite Jones.
The diversity in the film industry is growing and continues to expand as more people come into the industry, Mosingly said, and Oklahoms First is a great example of how that can happen.
Mosely noted that the Okla.
Film Festival was one year shy of 100 years old and was founded in 1908.
He noted that diversity in a diverse field is an important part of that and the film festival was created to celebrate that.
