Omaha Film Festival 2007 - Opening Night!

Be sure to mark your calendars for next Tuesday evening, February 27th for the opening festivities of the 2007 Omaha Film Festival. We are kicking off the festival with a bang at the Westwood Cinema 8 Theatre off of 125th & Center at 6:30 with the feature film “The TV Set,” starring David Duchovny, Ioan Gruffudd, Justine Bateman, Lucy Davis, Sigourney Weaver, and Judy Greer and directed by Jake Kasdan. It is a hair-raising comedy of art and compromise that follows an idealistic writer (Duchovny) as he tries to navigate his TV pilot down the mine-laden path from script through production to the madness of prime-time scheduling – all while trying to stay true to his vision. Along the way he has to juggle the agendas of a headstrong network president (Weaver), volatile young stars, a pregnant wife and an ever-optimistic personal manager.

This film will be theatrically released nationally on April 6th but your friends at the Omaha Film Festival are bringing it to you a few months earlier. I watched this film several weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m sure you will too so come out and support the festival and enjoy a great film.

And if that’s not enough of an evening for you, join us at 9:00pm at the Icehouse off of 108th & Maple for our opening night party. We are thrilled to be joined by none other than The Chris Saub Trio. Come out, meet some filmmakers, enjoy some great food and drink, and listen to some fantastic music.

The price for the entire evening is $10.00 per person or it’s included if you purchase an All Access Pass. Tickets and passes are available now on the website at or they can be purchased Tuesday evening at the theater. Come early and get a good seat!

I look forward to seeing you there. Come out, have a great time and help support art in Omaha.
