Maverick indie exhibitor Alamo Draftouse and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery bond over love for film and beer with the Off-Centered Film Fest, a short film competition running April 15-16 in Austin, Texas.

The Off-Centered Film Fest is accepting submissions of off-center-themed shorts now through March 1. Recognizing a creativity overlap between indie film and indie beer, Alamo's Tim League and Dogfish founder Sam Calagione are offering filmmakers the chance to "let their own freak-flags fly," says Calagione, in streams "as far from the mainstream as Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute I.P.A. is from mainstream beer." Three finalists will receive cash prizes and promos on Alamo and Dogfish's websites and social media outlets.

Here's TOH's flip cam talk with League about the expanding Alamo universe.
