Meet the Team

Michael Schwarz

Executive Director

As far back as I can remember, I have always loved documentaries. There is so much happening in this world and documentaries are a great avenue for educating us on what’s going on in a fun way. In 2020, I started my own documentary production company after completing my very 1st feature length documentary that has shown in 4 film festivals and been picked up by Gravitas Ventures, a distribution company. After attending several festivals over the years, I knew that I wanted to bring some powerful, my topical and just plain fun films from all over the world to my home state of Oklahoma.

There are so many great tools out there now So anyone can tell their story. If you have a story you want to tell, get a camera and make a film! We can’t wait to see your submission.

Emily Cowan

Screening Committee / Social Media

My love for documentaries started from a young age, while other kids were watching nickelodeon and Disney I was spending my days watching documentaries on the world and nature. Now being an adult it is pretty hard to sway me from any other genre of film. So of course when I got the opportunity to be involved in DocOKC, Oklahoma’s first and only All-Documentary Film Festival!
