EDMOND, Okla. (AP) - The University of Central Oklahoma’s Documentary Film festival is set for May 5 on campus in Edmond.

The event is sponsored by UCO’s College of Liberal Arts and showcases films that focus on a unique story set in Oklahoma.

Topics include the rise of mega-churches, an Oklahoma company that recycles roof shingles to pave roads, a firsthand account of American Indian culture through one man’s art and an organization that aids victims of Oklahoma’s human trafficking rings.

Films from previous festivals have gone on to Utah’s Slamdance Film Festival, the BigSky Documentary Film Festival in Montana and Oklahoma City’s deadCENTER Film Festival.

Many films have also won awards from competitions like the online Fusion Documentary Challenge, the online Audience Awards and the Oklahoma Broadcast Education Awards.
