18th Calgary Underground Film Festival

Apr 23–May 02

7:00 am–7:00 am


Get ready CUFF Fans – the 18th annual Calgary Underground Film Festival is set to take place this spring! This year there will be two distinct events comprising the 18th edition of the festival. You movielovers will be able to stream the bulk of films over 10 days from April 23 – May 2 followed by three days of drive-ins from June 3-5, 2021. Like last year, most selections will be available to watch on-demand, with special events – such as CUFF’s Opening Night Film, panels and other initiatives – available to stream live at set-times. As always, we'll continue to invite filmmakers to participate in Q&As, and find new ways to engage CUFF fans in the festival experience. CUFF is also set to begin producing a podcast, called CUFFcast, focusing on in-depth interviews with alumni filmmakers and other industry creatives. Hosted by Lead Programmer Cameron Macgowan, the first episode will be released in mid-March. Hang tight – the 2021 lineup will be announced in early April and tickets will go on sale then.
