Alamo Drafthouse & Dogfish Head 8th Annual “Off-Centered Film Festival”!

The three day celebration of craft beer, food, and film returns to Austin, April 23-25, 2015.

Highlights include rolling roadshow with Texas craft brewers and Cabin Boy with Chris Elliot and Adam Resnick in person!

Austin, TX – Monday, April 6 2015 – Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are proud to announce the return of the “Off-Centered Film Fest.” Now in its eighth year, OCFF is an epic three-day celebration of craft beer, delicious food and off-centered films for off-centered people. This year, it all revolves around the theme of “Yacht Rockin'”, paying tribute radical nautical times in cinema. Two major highlights this year include a massive Rolling Roadshow Beer Party with a fleet of Texas craft brewers on deck along Austin’s movie mockers Master Pancake Skewering TITANIC under the stars, and a rare 35mm screening of Chris Elliott’s salty 1994 comedy CABIN BOY with Elliott and director Adam Resnick in person!

Rare and vintage Dogfish Head beers will be available for purchase at all OCFF screenings. Plus, Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Founder and Head Brewer, will also be in person throughout the fest, hosting and toasting the spirit of “Yacht Rockin'” at all of this year’s events. And, because we all love smooth sailing and clean coastlines, this year’s OCFF will help further the great work of and help to benefit The National Wildlife Federation (

“I look forward to Off-Centered Film Fest every year,” says Sam. “Traveling to Austin, hanging with craft beer heads from Texas and beyond, celebrating film and food with our friends at the Drafthouse, seeing all the crazy inspired OCFF short film submissions… it’s all a huge blast!”

OCFF kicks off on Thursday, April 24, with “Master Pancake Presents: TITANIC Rolling Roadshow Beer Party.” Not only will this special outdoor screening feature Austin’s beloved movie mockers taking the wind out of the mega-blockbuster’s sails, but also more than a dozen Texas craft brewers will be on hand offering up selections of rare and special beers. This year’s featured breweries include: Karbach, Circle, Save The World, (512), Real Ale, Austin Beerworks, Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que, Oasis, Independence, Strange Land, Jester King, Live Oak, and Hops & Grain.

“John Erler and his Master Pancake team have been a big part of the Alamo Drafthouse family since nearly the very beginning,” says Alamo Drafthouse CEO and Founder Tim League. ” 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.”

Also on tap for the weekend: Wes Anderson’s THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU Dogfish Head Beer Feast, featuring a menu of chef-prepared food inspired by the film paired with hard-to-find Dogfish Head beers; screenings of the Marx Brothers classic high seas comedy MONKEY BUSINESS and modern Korean monster-piece THE HOST; and even a Yacht Rockin’ Party on an actual boat!

On Sunday, April 25, this year’s OCFF will come to a close with special guests comedian Chris Elliott and director Adam Resnick in person at Alamo South Lamar to present a rare 35mm screening of their tragically underappreciated comedy CABIN BOY.

“CABIN BOY is the pinnacle of ‘off-centered’ comedies,” says Alamo Director of Beer Events and OCFF programmer John Gross. “And we aim to make this 35mm screening the best one ever. It is such an honor to host Chris Elliott, who in addition to being a national treasure, brought life to the silver screen’s best fancy lad!”

Each year OCFF also features a short film competition. This year, contestants submitted 3-minute or less shorts on the “Yacht Rockin'” theme and the winners were selected via Facebook. The top three finalists are invited to come to Austin and will have their work shown up on the big screen – and find out their final ranking of 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place – as part of Sunday’s MONKEY BUSINESS program.
