OFF is just a stone's throw from Disney World and benefits greatly from a fruitful partnership with Universal Studios. In fact, the festival's annual, filmmaker-only backlot tour of the Universal Studios lot is just the sort of unforgettable perk visitors won't find elsewhere. As an added bonus, OFF screens its selected films in an incredible theater replete with state-of-the-art digital projection and sound, 3-D capabilities, gourmet concessions, two bars, and sinfully comfy chairs. It's cinema heaven, safely ensconced in the Sunshine State.
Orlando boasts a huge (and growing) film community, and OFF is an ideal entry point into that exciting family. Attending filmmakers benefit from discounted rates at festival hotels, free transportation from the hotel to the theater, and free Stella Artois at every single afterparty. At OFF, the focus isn't on big budgets, star power, or premiere status - it's on great films, great celebrations, and great hospitality for filmmakers who are ready to make themselves seen and heard.
