Save the date – The Other Venice Film Festival set for Oct. 10-12

The Other Venice Film Festival (OVFF), a community event dedicated to screening full-length, short and animated films that embody the spirit, energy and diversity of Venice, returns for its eleventh season.

The festival will run from Friday, Oct. 10, to Sunday, Oct. 12, with opening-night appearances by Michelle Rodriguez and Rie Rasmussen of 1%ERS.

The 2014 OVFF, taking place at the Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center in Venice, will feature more than 50 filmmakers, panel discussions, local artists, contests and parties.

On Friday, there will be a screening of 1%ERS starring Michelle Rodriguez and Rie Rasmussen with a Q-and-A with director Francesca de Sola to follow.

Friday will also open with the world premiere of the feature film Freedumb, a documentary directed by local Venice residents Laura Rudich and Sean Vanloozen.

Saturday features include multiple screenings of documentaries, shorts and special screenings from The Youth Film Series. That evening at Beyond Baroque, there will be a live performance by Musciens Sans Frontieres, last year’s winning music video recipient.

In addition, Irish artist Gary Palmer will also have his work on display at the Beyond Baroque. The event closes on Sunday with a Stella Artois beer garden and an awards ceremony.

“The spirit of the festival is rooted in the Venice community and celebrates the passion of local artists while embracing the talent of international filmmakers,” said Reuben De La Casas, founder of the festival. “The caliber of international filmmakers attending the festival this year is something not many other film festivals of our size can take pride in. I’m excited to watch the festival as it continues to grow each year.”

Some of this year’s sponsors include Stella Artois, Yelp and Doritos, which is in its second year of sponsorship for its “Crash the Super Bowl” contest, which receives submissions from both professional and amateur filmmakers for the chance to win $1 million and have their commercial appear during the Super Bowl. More information can be found on doritos.com.

Tickets for the festival are $10 per screening and $30 for the Stella Artois–sponsored beer garden.
