The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery have teamed up for the 7th Annual “Off-Centered Film Fest”, an epic multi-day celebration of craft beer, delicious food and “off-centered films for off-centered people”!

OCFF kicks off with an outdoor beer party screening of the thoroughly “Stuntin’” comedy HOT ROD with special guests The Lonely Island – Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – in person. Also on tap for the weekend: Stunt-packed cinematic thrills courtesy of Harold Lloyd’s silent-era masterpiece SAFETY LAST and Jackie Chan’s bone-crunching kung fu classic DRUNKEN MASTER and more! Rare and vintage Dogfish Head beers will be available for purchase at all screenings. Plus, Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Founder and Head Brewer, will be in person throughout the fest, hosting and toasting the spirit of “Stuntin’” at all of this year’s events.

STUNT ROCK – Late Show
Ultra-rare 35mm screening of this 1978 feature, a nitro-glycerin cocktail of suicide-level stuntwork and amazingly awful mullet-rock. See badass stuntman Grant Page set on fire, attacked by jungle cats, blown up with TNT, hurtled over countless cliffs and more. And, in between these documentary-style vignettes, let yourself fall under the spell of rock Sorcery – a bell-bottomed, be-mulleted band featuring not one but TWO wizards in their stage act! Essential viewing for adrenaline junkies, rock/wizard/mullet enthusiasts, and fans of non-stop extreme fun.
AN EVENING WITH THE LONELY ISLAND – Late Show
Join us for an intimate, irreverent and wildly entertaining evening of goofy faces, white boy rap on boats, and laser cats with Akiva Schaffer, Andy Samberg, and Jorma Taccone, aka, The Lonely Island. The Emmy winning (!) minds behind “Dick in a Box” will be on hand for a night of merriment, beer drinking, and clip watching on a screen way bigger than your laptop. Rest assured: Everything will be awesome.
SATURDAY, APRIL 26th – Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline
HAROLD LLOYD’S SAFETY LAST
WITH BEST OF OCFF SHORTS – Early Evening
Off-Centered Film Fest 2014 draws to a close with a screening of Harold Lloyd’s dazzling, stunt-filled silent masterpiece. Before the feature, we’ll showcase the three winning “Stuntin”-themed OCFF short films, and Sam Calagione will be on hand to award the winners their prizes.
GHOST RIDER: MY FAVORITE MOVIE – Late Show
An evening with a Nicolas Cage classic… and the film's most staunch defender, film critic Marc Calderaro, who’ll provide live commentary throughout the show. While masquerading as a comic book blockbuster, GHOST RIDER plumbs the depths of how Hollywood films get made, and how one man – with enough star power and sheer fanatical will – can derail the whole process. Calderaro is our Virgil on this tour of production hell, guiding us through decisions and motivations of those who made the film for love (read: Cage), and those for money (read: Just about everyone else). Let's watch monkey movies, listen to the Carpenters, and drink jellybeans out of martini glasses until our heads explode on fire.

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.
