THURSDAY – SATURDAY, APRIL 14th, 15th & 16th
WHAT:The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery have teamed up for the “Off-Centered Film Fest”, which features 'off-centered films for off-centered people'!
WHEN/WHERE:THURSDAY, APRIL 14th
STRANGE BREW BEER PARTY – AT SUNSET
Kick off the OCFF with an outdoor screening of STRANGE BREW and a medley of craft brew.Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and various brewers from the local Austin beer scene will be on hand serving exclusive brews and participating in a discussion about the state of the craft industry and Texas beer trends after the movie.Participating breweries include (512), Live Oak, Thirsty Planet and more!Bring a blanket and/or chair and enjoy a brew and movie under the stars.
Sam Calagione and crew will be at the Alamo Drafthouse on S. Lamar enjoying some pints and celebrating some off-centered films.The three winners of the Off-Centered Film Festival and several other honorable mentions will be aired and enjoyed by all.
The OCFF (Off-centered Film Fest) features 'off-centered films for off-centered people'! We heartily believe in the DIY-grassroots-david-beats-goliath approach. And now we want to give independent-minded, aspiring filmmakers the chance to let their own freak-flags fly by making their own films that celebrate the perseverance of the underdog! We want to incorporate as many different, individual, vignettes of the 'little engines that could' into the world of Dogfish Head and we want to celebrate filmmakers whose visions jibe with our own. In addition to the copious booty we will lay on first-through-third place annual winners, we will show many of the competition submissions online and in our pubs and breweries as well. Our goal is to build a short film competition that is as far from the mainstream as our 90 Minute I.P.A. is from mainstream beer. So what are you waiting for? Crack open a cold one, pour it into a nice snifter, and let it come up to cellar temperature while you storyboard. Sip. Brainstorm. Sip again. Write dialogue. Sip again. Cast. Sip. Make that film. Good luck. Cheers.
