Nothing goes together quite like movies and beer, making us wonder why there aren’t more theaters that serve alcohol. But soon, beer and movies will come together in a new and very entertaining way. The 2012 Off-Centered Film Fest by Dogfish Head isn’t just an excuse to meet up and watch movies while drinking craft brew, though it is a big part of it; but it’s also a chance to show some creativity and make a film of your own featuring the beer you love.
Located at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, TX with a date to be announced (sometime in April), the Off-Centered Film Fest will be taking submissions as of January 13, 2012 via their website. Films can be no longer than 5 minutes in length, must contain a “WESTERN OFF-CENTERED” theme which can be interpreted however the director sees fit, and all submissions must include a reference to Dogfish Head in the script OR have Dogfish Head product placement in the film. Entries must be received by March 5, 2012 and prizes include cash ($1,000 for 1st place) as well as airfare, hotel, tickets to the event, and a bag full of Dogfish Head goodies. Happy Filming!
