10th Annual Omaha Film Festival


During the OFF we now do a Writers Theatre aspect of our screenplay competition, which means we have local actors read sections of the screenplays that are finalists to an audience. It is a great experience for the screenwriters who can attend the festival to experience it.


Prizes will be announced later this year. They typically include software, Oakley sunglasses, and for local writers: a free admission to Lew Hunter's Screenwriting Colony.


All finalists though are included in the Writers Theatre!

Omaha Film Festival

ESTABLISHED IN 2005, the Omaha Film Festival (OFF) began as a way for the Omaha community to experience the artistry of independent filmmaking through the exhibition of new films by aspiring artists that are otherwise unavailable for viewing in the area. Over the last 9 years, the OFF has made great strides towards becoming one of the most accomplished teaching festivals in the Central United States, offering 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.


During the festival we do have a 2 day conference with seasoned professionals across many fields (including screenwriters, producers, directors, and actors). In 2015, we will have our 3rd annual Writers Theatre which is live readings with local actors of our screenplay finalists.
