Wait for it, wait for it! Anticipation is half the fun, so I’ve been told. -Phil Collins

Yep… we’re waiting, waiting and (mostly) anticipating the opening of the 2016 Oxford Film Festival, probably more so this year than any other.

The reason? Well, one of them most certainly is the fact that Oxford filmmaking alumni are expected to be on hand at the festival in droves this year; filmmakers who will see their work screened in Oxford for the second (or third or fourth) time in as many years. Filmmakers who we call friends, ones we can slap on the back over a beer at our favorite bar. Heck, some of us (not me) may even on the big screen ourselves.

Below, you’ll find a partial list of Oxonians who’ll stand tall and make us proud… again… at the popular four day festival headed our way in just a few short weeks.

In his music video fallen Star AJC & The Envelope Pushers, director Clay Hardwick will show what happens when you make it to the top. The video combines three original songs into a cinematic narrative, following AJC into a world of bitter famedom. Of course, making a deal at the crossroads has its costs

The above films should satiate our thirst for the next day or so when HottyToddy.com will pick up our coverage by featuring other Oxford alumni and the films they plan to unveil at this year’s edition of OFF.

The 2016 Oxford Film Festival will take place February 17-21 and will be held predominantly at Malco Oxford Commons. Leading to the festival’s kickoff on Feb. 17, check HottyToddy.com for other features and what to expect at the popular festival.
