Omaha Film Festival

Since 2005, the Omaha Film Festival, or OFF, has been exposing Omaha movie lovers to little-seen narrative features, documentaries, and short films from Nebraska and around the world. Each year, the festival screens more than 100 films, with many screenings attended by the filmmakers themselves and followed by informative Q&A sessions. Additional panels, lectures, and workshops at the concurrent Filmmakers Conference have featured such accomplished speakers as Oscar-winning Avatar cinematographer Mauro Fiore, Miss Congeniality director Donald Petrie, and Lethal Weapon screenwriter Shane Black. Opening- and closing-night parties draw cinephiles and filmmakers alike to local hotspots for a chance to discuss cinematography or meet the only other person in the world campaigning for a Citizen Kane sequel.
