NBA legend John Starks returns to his hometown Tulsa with filmmaker Leigh Simons for the new documentary ‘Keep Shooting: The John Starks Story’ as part of the 2021 Circle Cinema Film Festival presented by JD3TV.
The film will screen Thu Jul 15, 7pm with a post-film Q&A with John Starks and Leigh Simons, and again on Fri Jul 16, 2pm with an intro from John and Leigh. Both screenings will also include a video intro from Joel Osteen, featured in the film. Tickets $20.
Special VIP packages are available for $1000 as a fundraiser for the non-profits John Starks Foundation and Circle Cinema Foundation. VIPs will enjoy a private red carpet reception with John and Leigh on Thu Jul 15, admission to either screening, and an exclusive four-course lunch at Polo Grill on Fri Jul 16.
Keep Shooting: The John Starks Story tracks his rise through the early days at Central High School and Oklahoma State University to a legendary run with the New York Knicks in the 90s. From the lows of a crushing game 7 loss in the 1993 NBA finals to highs of making the All-Star team and winning the Sixth Man of the Year award, Starks has made Tulsa proud with his on-court success and phenomenal off-court philanthropy through the John Starks Foundation.
