ABOUT THE CUFF.DOCS DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL

PRESENTED BY CALGARY UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL

CUFF.Docs Documentary Film Festival showcases the best in non-fiction films. The event presented by the Calgary Underground Film Festival screens 20+ full-length features, as well as shorts, varying in subject, style and genres within the art form.

CUFF.Docs is the perfect place for anyone with the same intrigue and interest in factual content as we have. We’ll bring guests with the films, and plan for a unique CUFF-experience with the festival, and the films we present. We aim to promote art and encourage dialogue.

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.

The Calgary Underground Film Festival loves supporting independent film, and with a great team and passionate supporters, we elevate Calgary’s cultural landscape.

GUIDELINES
1) Features films: must be a Calgary premiere, and not have screened in theatre, local festival or Canadian broadcast before our dates.
2) Short films: Priority is given to films which have not yet screened in Calgary.
3) We do not program films which were finished prior to last year’s festival.

*Free for alumni and Alberta filmmakers. Please email us for a waiver code if you meet either of these criteria.
