We're going online! Elevating Calgary’s cultural landscape with the best in international independent cinema, the 17th Calgary Underground Film Festival (originally scheduled for April 20-26) will return in 2020 from June 22-28 as an online festival. Throughout the 7-day online event, you'll discover unique independent and genre films streaming in Alberta for the first time, shorts packages, Q&As with filmmakers, programmer intros before all films, and interactive experiences. The festival will take place on the platform CineSend, and will feature a mix of live events and the ability to stream films on-demand. Special initiatives include two nights of drive-in screenings at Big Rock Brewery on Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27, collaborations with Sled Island, and CJSW curated playlists for each film. Films will be closed-captioned or subtitled to make our programming more accessible.

While the festival will look different this year, we’re working hard to keep the CUFF experience alive in the virtual world and provide a fun, engaging, unique community experience for our audience, filmmakers and partners.

CUFF fans will have the opportunity to get their eyes on the newest genre-defying independent films not streaming anywhere else. With a few exceptions, all films will be available to watch on-demand for the duration of the festival (starting June 23 at midnight) and are available to anyone in Alberta. Start exploring the lineup and check out our list of scheduled live events. Read on for festival highlights and engage with us on social using #CUFFOnline. Tickets to all online films are on sale now.
