Time to Get Stuntin’!

The Alamo Drafthouse and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are pleased to announce an open call for short film entries for the seventh annual OFF-CENTERED FILM FEST which is already being championed as the most dare-devily film festival ever!  The prizes are ridiculously good this year, so if you can handle the exxxtremeness- read on! 

The short film competition is at the heart of each year’s OCFF, while the brain is mostly made up of craft beer, delicious food and radical cinema. This year’s fest will take place Thursday, April 24 through Saturday, April 26 at the Alamo in Austin, TX, but entries for the shorts will be coming in from all over! 

Each year’s filmmaking competition is based around a theme and this year, it’s “Off-Centered, Stuntin’,’” a celebration of classic awe-inspiring feats in the spirit of iconic American danger-heroes like Evel Knievel. Like all OCFF thematic prompts, interpretation is wide open to the filmmakers.  So, let your imagination run nutzo and somersualt jump off a flaming helicopter into a volcano! That's a metaphor.... OR IS IT! 

To enter, filmmakers must submit an original 5-minute or less short film incorporating this theme. Submissions open January 31st and close March 1st. Online voting to select the finalists starts as soon as a film is uploaded and will end March 5th.

The top 12 shorts, as voted by the public and a panel of judges, will be chosen and announced on March 6. The grand prize OCFF winner will be chosen at the festival, and 12 of the top-rated shorts will screen at the Alamo during the fest.

The grand prize includes $2,500 cash, “The Delaware Dogfish Experience” (a one-of-a-kind trip to Dogfish’s HQ that includes 2 nights at the Dogfish Inn, a brewery tour, a kayak outing and more), and a 2014 Fantastic Fest Fan Badge!

First, second and third place finalists will also be chosen, with prizes that include airfare to Austin, accommodations for the fest, admission to all the OCFF events, and a bag full of Alamo and Dogfish Head goodies. Don’t front- STUNT! Read more about it all HERE

It’s time to gather up your stunna friends and get cracking to win those sweet, sweet prizes.  If at all possible- please don’t hurt yourself.
