The Off-Centered Film Fest Kicks Off Tomorrow

OCFF_WebBanner_2015The Off-Centered Film Festival, the annual celebration of movies and beer from the folks behind Alamo Drafthouse and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, kicks off tomorrow in Austin with the ceremonious Rolling Road Show beer party.

Now in its eighth year, OCFF typically aligns the festivities around a changing theme, this year’s being…YACHT ROCKIN. In that spirit, the big opening night event will be an outdoor screening of Titanic, complete with ever-hilarious commentary from Austin institutions Master Pancake Theater.

“John Erler and his Master Pancake team have been a big part of the Alamo Drafthouse family since nearly the very beginning,” Alamo Drafthouse CEO and Founder Tim League said in a recent press release. ” I am really excited to bring one of their finest shows ever into what has become one of my all time favorite annual events, the Off-Centered Film Festival.”

The event will also double as a beer festival, with special taps from Dogfish Head along with a host of local favorites…
