The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery have teamed up for the 8th Annual Off-Centered Film Fest, an epic multi-day celebration of craft beer, delicious food and off-centered films for off-centered people! We’ll have a killer lineup of screenings and, as always, a shorts competition featuring your 3-minute Yacht Rockin’ masterpieces. You think you have what it takes to be crowned the OCFF Filmmaking Champion? Discover how you can sail your way to victory below.

Submit Your Yacht Rockin’ Short

Shoot a 3-minute (or less) film incorporating the theme of Off-Centered, Yacht Rockin’. Think warm ‘n’ salty summer breezes. Think mellow and smooth jams. Think cool surfer dudes hanging ten. Think waves ‘n’ mermaids. Think sweet harpoons and fish sticks on the high seas. Think sea captains in turtlenecks. Think sipping craft brewed ales out of coconuts. Better yet, think any of those things and then film them! Then you’ll be Yacht Rockin’!

Dream yourself a whale of a Yacht Rockin’-themed short. Film it. Submit it. (Be sure to adhere to all the guidelines listed HERE.) Submit your film between March 1, 2015 and midnight on March 31, 2015 through this webpage.  Tell your friends. Show your friends (and their friends). Show your uncle that you don’t really know (and his uncle that he doesn’t know). Have them all VOTE for your video, and you just might just have a shot at glory (and prizes).

Sam Calagione & Dogfish Head

When Sam Calagione opened Dogfish Head in 1995 it was the smallest commercial brewery in America making 10 gallons of beer at a time.  Today Dogfish Head is among the fastest growing breweries in the country.  Dogfish Head has focused on brewing stronger, more exotic beers since the day it opened as the motto “Off-centered ales for off-centered people” attests to.  Dogfish Head has grown into a 200 person company with a restaurant/brewery/distillery in Rehoboth Beach and a production brewery in Milton, Delaware, selling beer in 27 states.  Sam served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Brewers Association in 2012 and 2013 and was a finalist in 2011, 2012 and 2013 for a James Beard Foundation Award in the Outstanding Wine & Spirits Professional category. Fast Company Magazine named Sam one of The 100 Most Creative People in Business in 2011.   He is the author of “Brewing up a Business” and “Extreme Brewing,” and co-authored “He Said Beer, She Said Wine.”  Sam lives in beautiful Lewes, Delaware, with his wife and Dogfish VP Mariah and their two children Sammy and Grier.
