We are now accepting submissions for the 15th Chicago Underground Film
Festival. Entry Forms and complete guidelines for submission are
available now at http://www.cuff.org
The CHICAGO UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL is dedicated to the work of film
and video makers with defiantly independent visions.
As Roger Ebert said, "What you get for your money is not just admission
to the films, but admission to a subculture."
Radical beyond independent, the "underground" culture supports films
that go beyond expectations and genre, to include a menu of films made
with passion, obsession, and drive. In addition, CUFF has consistently
honored the history of underground and independent cinema by presenting
tributes and retrospectives of filmmakers such as Tom Palozzolo, Richard
Kern, Kenneth Anger, George Kuchar, John Waters, and Paul Morrissey.
Panels and workshops augment the diverse programming, and every evening
of screenings is followed by a great night of parties, events and
concerts. Jury awards are presented in the following categories:
Narrative Feature, Narrative Short, Documentary Feature, Documentary
Short, Experimental, Animation, Children's Film and "Made in Chicago" -
along with an Audience Choice award.
