It all started on August 26th, 2017 with VHS Double-Feature screening titled 'An Evening With Jeff' at the Individual Artists of Oklahoma - IAO Gallery. From these humble beginnings we've grown into doing at least 4 scheduled shows and events every month! OKC welcomed our VHS shenanigans with enthusiastic joy and as a way to say thank you, on the second anniversary of our first public show, VHSANDCHILL presents 'A Weekend with Jeff': A Jeff Goldblum Film Festival!
This festival is the first of it's kind! A Jeff Goldblum film festival in the heart of OKCs historic Film Row! The Paramount Room, once host to film icons of days gone by , now hosts an event bringing some of Oklahoma City's best filmmakers, artists, comedians, and musicians all together to celebrate one of our favorite actors and raise some money for a local charity - The Rock & Roll Camp for Girls OKC!
A VHSANDCHILL Award will be given to the top three submitted short films!
