Two Oklahoma-based films have been accepted into the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

The Oklahoma Film & Music Office says narrative feature "Rudderless" and documentary "This May Be the Last Time" will make their world premieres.

Oklahoma natives Jeff Robison and Casey Twenter wrote "Rudderless," while William H. Macy directs. The film tells the story of a grieving father who comes across a box of his deceased son's original music, spurring him to form a rock-n-roll band. It was shot in Oklahoma earlier this year.

The festival is scheduled for Jan. 16-26.
