Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema are collaborating again this year to showcase the best 5-minutes-or-less “off-centered” films at the 2012 Off-Centered Film Fest. This year’s theme for submitted film shorts is “Western off-centered”, and each entry must “somehow feature Dogfish Head beer”. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films now (deadline: March 5) to be part of the festival from April 19 through 21, 2012 in Austin, Texas.
You’ve had our off-centered ales. Now make the movie.
Every spring, Dogfish Head hooks up with the folks behind Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas, to put on the Off-Centered Film Fest.
It’s simple, really. You give us five minutes (or less) of film, and we’ll give you a shot at glory. The best films will be shown at the festival, and the top three will share a big pile of booty.
Don’t have high-end gear? Film it on your phone. Can’t write good dialogue? Shoot it live and call it gritty. The OCFF is a showcase for the up-and-comers, the independent-minded, the Davids of the world facing down the mighty Goliaths.
So, what are you waiting for? Crack open a cold one, pour it into a snifter, and let it come up to cellar temperature while you storyboard. Sip. Brainstorm. Sip. Cast. Sip. Make that film. Good luck. Cheers.
