More Information
The Omaha Film Festival (OFF) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization founded in 2005 as an avenue for the Omaha community to experience the artistry of independent filmmaking. More than a decade later, OFF is recognized by MovieMaker magazine as one of the “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.”

Completely volunteer-run, the annual festival showcases more than 90 films selected from an average of more than 700 yearly entries. Submissions come in from around the world and include regional and world premier films as well as advanced screenings of films that have already attracted wider distribution. Narrative features, documentaries, short films, and animated shorts are screened during the week-long Festival with a special section for Nebraska-made films. The selected filmmakers are invited to attend the festival and are given the opportunity to discuss their films with the audience after each screening.

Over the last 11 years, the OFF has made great strides towards becoming one of the most accomplished teaching festivals in the Central United States. We are proud to offer opportunities for filmmakers, students, and those who value the artistry of film to learn more about the craft of filmmaking through panels, lectures, and workshops taught by seasoned professionals at our annual Filmmakers Conference. Past guests have included Famke Janssen, Chad Michael Murray, Jaime King, Chris Klein, Mauro Fiore, Mike Hill, Shane Black, Tom Elkins, and Ted Griffin.
