The 9th Annual Off-Centered Film Festival Announces Its Lineup

Get ready for beer, movies, and boats.

If you live in Texas, or can get to Texas for really awesome things that are worth the trip, you should consider attending the 9th annual Off-Centered Film Festival. Starting May 13th, the fest celebrates film, beer, laughter, and badass boat parties. It sounds like a total blast, and for the first time ever Houston and Dallas fans can get in on the fun along with everyone in Austin.

And here’s the official press release:

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are proud to announce the return of the "Off-Centered Film Fest." Now in its ninth year, OCFF is an epic three-day celebration of craft beer, delicious food and off-centered films for off-centered people. This year, the theme is "Medieval Times," a sword-swinging, mace-wielding tribute to the Middle Ages on the silver screen. And, sound the trumpets and ring the bells, because this year OCFF is spreading the ye olde fune across the land of Texas with its first-ever multi-city tour! Now off-centered beer fans in Houston and Dallas can get it on the delicious action at their local Alamo Drafthouse locations.

Highlights this year include Austin movie mockers Master Pancake raising their kilts on BRAVEHEART, the Terry Gilliam mind-melter TIME BANDITS served up with a suitably mouth-melting feast, and the greatest - or at least the funniest - quest film the world has ever known, MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL presented as a glorious coconut-clopping, fully interactive Quote-Along.

Rare and vintage Dogfish Head beers will be available for purchase at all OCFF screenings. Plus, Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery founder and president, will also be in person throughout the fest, hosting and toasting a goblet to the realm and to his favorite subject, collaboration. Calagione even wrote a book about it and will be hosting a book signing happy hour at this year's festival stop in Dallas.

"Off-Centered is always such a blast," says Sam. "I look forward to traveling to Austin, but I'm over the moon that we'll get to hit Dallas and Houston this year, too. Being able to share a pint with folks all over Texas, talk a bit about my new book and maybe share some stories about successful collaborations like OCFF, now that's what I call party."

OCFF kicks off Friday, May 13 in Katy at Mason Park with Master Pancake presenting their legendary mock of Mel Gibson's epic BRAVEHEART. The festival travels to Austin on Saturday, May 14, for a Ye Olde VIP Boat Party on Lady Bird Lake in the afternoon, and that evening a feast presentation of TIME BANDITS featuring five delectably time-hopping courses designed by Alamo Chef Trish Eichelberger. Then on Sunday, May 15, Sam and the gang will be in Dallas for a happy hour where he'll sign copies of his new book, "Off-centered Leadership," before closing out the festival that night with an epic MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL Quote-Along.

"Off-Centered Festival has become one of my all-time favorite annual events," says Alamo Drafthouse CEO and Founder Tim League. "We're long overdue bringing a taste of the fest to other Alamos and other cities. I'm excited for Dallas and Houston to join in on the fun - and all the delicious, delicious beer."
