Calgary Underground Film Festival celebrates 15 years

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments

Thinking about heading to the mall to catch a movie this Spring? Before seeing the latest Star Wars prequel or the newest superhero action flick, take a break from the ordinary to celebrate a different kind of film. From April 16 – 22, the Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF) will be back at The Globe Cinema for its fifteenth year – and what a year it will be.

With 32 films over the six-day experience, there is something for every film lover in Calgary. This year features three world premiers – The Secret Poppo, Paper Year and Slave to the Grind – and home-grown art like Freaks and Geeks: The Documentary and Knuckleball, both from Alberta-born directors.

If you’re looking for your classic CUFF favourites, don’t despair! The Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party is returning with vintage shows and advertisements from the ’60s to the ’80s. In addition, enjoy an event that is one part film festival and one part stand-up comedy: The Found Footage Festival, Volume 8.

While you wait for your film to start, check out the fourth year of CUFFcade, a five-game indie arcade located on the upper level of The Globe. The best part? Games are free to play! Also on the upper level, check out 15 years of CUFF posters – amazing art complimenting amazing films.

Tickets are live, so get yours today. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Instagram – we’ll be giving away tickets leading up to CUFF!
