Ozarka® Brand Drive-In Film Festival

Ozarka Drive-In Film Festival - Texas

We’re excited to announce the first-ever Ozarka® Brand Drive-In Film Festival, a time-honored tradition for Texans, celebrating the beauty of Texas and offering good old-fashioned fun for the community. The film festival will be hosted by Dallas Film on select weekends and cities throughout October and November. 

Ozarka® will be bringing Texans together for a special showing of notable Texas films (as voted on by Texans). To honor frontline and essential workers during this time, Ozarka® will also be holding special “Frontline Friday” screenings on the day before each public event to give frontline workers a little relief with their families during this hectic time. 

For those interested in attending the drive-in film festivals, each event is free and will be filled on a first come, first park basis – so get there early to get a good spot! Please see the below Attendance Guidelines. Attendees also have the chance to receive a premium Ozarka® goodie bag when they bring 10 empty plastic bottles to recycle at designated recycling bins during each event. The goodie bags will include sought after movie concessions like popcorn and snacks from local Texas companies.

 

Thank You For Recycling, Texas!

To support the natural beauty and health of its home state, Ozarka® will donate $25,000 to the non-profit Keep Texas Beautiful, to fund programs that improve recycling access and education in rural Texas communities.   

Ozarka® has also made another large commitment to recycling, by recently announcing that it will use recycled plastic across its still water portfolio, including a line of 100% recycled & recyclable bottles. Ozarka® has been committed to Texas for more than 50 years. Through the Ozarka® Brand Drive-in Film Festival, 

the brand hopes to further this mission by celebrating and respecting the natural gifts and traditions of Texas and encourages its community to do the same.
