Off-Centered Film Fest 2013 to Have Hip Hop Theme

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 10.21.04 AMA Call for Entries sent out today for the 2013 Off-Centered Film Festival reveals that this year’s festival will have a hip hop theme. Dope.

The Off-Centered Film Festival, is, of course, the result of an annual collaboration between the Alamo Drafthouse and the off-centered ambassador of craft beer himself, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head.

The annual weekend-long film festival typically features a short film competition, beer dinner, special screenings and an outdoor Rolling Roadshow accompanied by unique brews from local breweries. Last year’s festival had a western theme and featured plenty of fun, including a Blazing Saddles Quote-Along Beer Party with cap guns and baked beans. The event brought out some really amazing local beers, including Ranger Creek’s Strawberry Milk Stout and a firkin of  (512)‘s Pecan Porter with Toasted Coconut and Dried Cherry to name a few.

In years past, Off-Centered has always been held predominately at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, so it will be interesting to see where this year’s festival will be held considering the theater’s temporary closure for construction.

Bitter as I am that my horribly offensive, profanity-laced stop motion cowboy action figure film was not accepted to last year’s short film competition (one day I’ll post it on Bitch Beer in all its glory), I still most definitely, without hesitation, recommend everyone save the dates April 18-20 for this year’s festival because it’s always an amazing time.

Now, the only question remaining, is this year’s Rolling Roadshow film going to be Boys n the Hood, 8 Mile or Malibu’s Most Wanted?
