14th Chicago Underground Film Festival
The 2007 Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF) has issued its call for
entries! CUFF presents a wide range of work exploring the many definitions
and interpretations of the concept of "underground". From alternative music
films and political agitprop to high camp and formal experimentation and
everything in-between. We like films that go beyond expectations and genre,
films made with passion, obsession and drive. The festival is dedicated to
work that defines or defies all genres (especially experimental, narrative,
animation, and documentary), and admits 16mm, 35mm, mini-dv and DVcam
Founded in 1994, the Chicago Underground Film Festival is an annual event
dedicated to the work of film and video makers from around the world with
defiantly independent visions. Our mission is to support and promote
innovative films and videos that dissent in form, technique, or content from
the "indie" film/video mainstream and to create a community for makers and
audiences of adventurous work that entertains, pushes boundaries, challenges
viewers and transcends expectations...if you suspect your film is
"underground," it probably is.
Unlike many other "independent" film events our goal is not to imitate old
guard, market-driven festivals such as Sundance. Instead we seek to create
our own particular niche by presenting an accessible, user-friendly showcase
for Avant-Garde and cult cinema.
