CUFF.DocsWe'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.
CUFF.Docs grew out of both a desire to bring more international documentaries to Calgary, and a necessity. We were seeing so many great documentary films submitted to our annual Calgary Underground Film Festival, and through attending film festivals worldwide, but we just couldn’t fit them all into one event. We saw the appetite for documentaries in this city was huge; we had people ask us repeatedly for more, or for a documentary festival – so we finally decided to go for it.
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.
Tickets to the festival cost $10 ($8 for members, students and seniors).
