The Other Venice Film Festival (OVFF) proudly returns, better than ever, for its 13th season this October 7th to 9th.Opening night kicks off on Friday October 7, at 6pm at Beyond Baroque. Films will be screened throughout the weekend.
The OVFF is a nonprofit community event dedicated to screening full- length, short and animated films that embody the spirit, energy and diversity of Venice, California. From its humble beginnings in 2004 with only 14 films, the OVFF doubled in size each of the next three years. In 2012 seventy-five filmmakers from the area and abroad – including Australia, England and Germany – descended on Venice for four days of film screenings, premieres, sell out crowds, spirited Q&A sessions, panel discussions, local art on display and parties with live music and DJs. For 2016, the selection of films is the best yet.
The OVFF will also be recognizing City Dignitaries with an Abbot Award for Community Service. Some of the local artists who have participated in the festival include Roger Corman, Catherine Hardwicke, Werner Herzog, Tony Alva, Orson Bean, Tony Bill, Paul Chowder, Camryn Manheim, Gary Marcus, Stanley Mitchell, Chris Mulkey, Zak Penn, Stacey Peralta, Michael Pressman, Danny Trejo, and Sean Welch, among many others.
