Out of roughly 500 submissions received from 22 countries, the Omaha Film Festival curates a roster of 90 selections in the following categories:

Features

The festival's roster of narrative features opens with The Sapphires, an Australian musical drama about an Aboriginal Motown group, and closes with Upside Down a science-fiction romance between Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst.

OFF the EDGE

The films in the OFF the EDGE series are not for the faint of heart, nor for those too attached to their socks. Year of the Living Dead looks at George Romero's very first Living Dead movie and explores how the political environment of the '60s shaped the cutting edge horror movie, whereas Confine follows a former model and recovering abuse victim who finds herself trapped in her own home by an unpredictable, possibly violent thief.

Nebraska Short Films

Nebraska's crop of short films leans towards the dark and thought-provoking this year, with such items as “Julia's Daughter”, where an elderly woman must come to terms with her past, and “Three Trees”, a conversation with a real Master Sergeant who relieves his PTSD through photography. Other films show there's still room for silliness, such as “2D”, a cartoon-live action mash-up.

Documentaries

This year's documentaries take a glimpse at people doing good around the world in films such as Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey, but also delve into the controversial with Informant, about radical activist turned FBI informant Brandon Darby, whom some call hero and others call traitor.

Live-Action and Animated Shorts

Each day of the festival includes a block of live action and animated shorts. “Access” tells a tense gangster story about a heist gone wrong, while on the more light-hearted side, “I Hate You Red Light,” explores the tyranny of traffic signals in an animated fashion. The Oscar-nominated "Head Over Heels", meanwhile, takes a visually ingenious look at a married couple that literally does not see eye-to-eye.
