November 27 – December 29, 2018

The legend lives on…

In 19th century Spanish California, a heroic (but aging) masked outlaw known as el Zorro gets some unexpected help defending the small village of Los Angeles against his arch nemesis, Sergeant Pablo Gonzales.

A swashbuckling, adventure-filled comedy about family, honour and choosing the mark you want to leave on the world.

IF YOU LIKE: The Legend of Zorro, Pixar’s The Incredibles, Princess of Thieves

Audience Considerations: Suggested for ages 5+


November 28 – December 2, 2018

We’re heading into our 6th year of CUFF.Docs, showcasing the best in non-fiction films during the Calgary Underground Film Festival’s five-day documentary festival. The festival screens 12 full-length features, as well as shorts, varying in subject, style and genres within the art form.

At CUFF.Docs, the quality of the film is what matters most; we don’t book films to make political statements or advocate for particular issues. Instead, we hope to present a range of films that both confirm and challenge beliefs, promoting a sense of wonder and a healthy skepticism, and above all, that continue to advance the medium of documentary filmmaking.

Tickets to the festival cost $10 ($8 for members, students and seniors).
