Over the last 10 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 OFF we now do a Writers Theatre, which means we have local actors read sections of the screenplays that are finalists to an audience. It is a great experience for the screenwirters who are able to attend the festival to experience it.


We do have a conference during the festival as well. In 2014 some of the panleists included:

 Leslie Dixon - Writer, “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Pay it Forward,” “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Hairspray,” and “Limitless”
Steve Faber - Writer, “We’re the Millers,” “Wedding Crashers,” and “Married with Children”


Other panelists over the years have included: Jim Kouf, Shane Black, Ted Griffin, Daniel Petrie, Donald Petrie, Chris Klein, Jamie King, Chad Michael Murray, Famke Janssen, Mauro Fiore, Mike Hill, and many others.
