As a 501(c)3 the Omaha Film Festival is proud to participate in the Omaha Gives! 24-hour charitable challenge on May 20, 2015.  What is it?  An opportunity for the people in our awesome community to donate to the non-profits that they love and have their funds matched by the Omaha Community Foundation to provide greater financial support to organizations like us!

On May 20th from midnight to midnight with a minimum donation of $10 you can help support the Omaha Film Festival and participate with us to continue to bring amazing independent film to our cultural landscape.  We will be joining nearly 700 local nonprofits to raise money together and compete for matching funds and prize money.  The more money we raise, the larger percentage of the bonus dollars we will receive.  The more donors we get to give to us, the more likely we are to win prizes.

For more information and to make your donation on May 20th go to!

And look for Jason, Marc, and Julie the evening of the 20th at The Funny Bone (Village Pointe) at our Laugh Your Ca$h OFF celebration.  Between 7:00pm and 10:00pm we’ll be enjoying our favorite drinks and sharing past OFF stories.  We would love to have you come out and join us and grab the microphone and tell us your favorite OFF memory!  There will be no admission but Omaha Gives donation stations will be available to help us raise money.  And if you donate, you may find yourself eligible to smash your favorite festival director in the face with a cream pie!
