Omaha Film Festival 2007 – day 0.5

The 2007 Omaha Film Festival officially kicks off on Tuesday but we had a special event Monday evening for our volunteers. We gathered together at the Westwood Cinema 8 Theatre at 6:00 this evening and after checking everyone in and giving them their official OFF t-shirt and volunteer pass, we had a great meeting talking about the festival, the films we’re screening, the website, etc. After discussing the various volunteer roles and the specifics of the festival, we treated them to seven of our short film entries and one of the feature films. The feedback for the films was tremendous and everyone in attendance had a great time.

Significant props go to the staff at the Westwood Theatre for helping us get all of the projectors and theaters ready and for creating a very comfortable, professional, and fun environment for our staff and our volunteers. You’ve got a great theater and we’re glad to be working with you this year.

Take a deep breath.

Tuesday is the official launch and we’re starting it off in style with a screening of “The TV Set” on Westwood’s biggest screen at 6:30pm and our opening night party at the Ice House Live off of 108th & Maple at 9:00pm featuring the music of Chris Saub, all for the low opening night price of $10.00 per person. Tickets and passes are available online now and starting Tuesday afternoon at the Westwood Theatre in the Omaha Film Festival booth.

I look forward to seeing everyone there. Help support art in Omaha.
