Call For Entries! Final Deadline in 2 weeks!
Call 4 Entries! 14th Chicago Underground Film Festival
The 2007(CUFF) has issued its call for entries! CUFF presents a wide range of work exploring the many definitions and interpretations of the concept of â€œundergroundâ€. 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 (including experimental, documentary, animation, and narrative ), and admits 16mm, 35mm, mini-dv and DVcam exhibition formats.
Founded in 1994, theis 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 â€œindieâ€ film/video mainstream and to create a community for makers and audiences of adventurous work that entertains, pushes boundaries, challenges viewers and transcends expectationsâ€¦if you suspect your film is â€œunderground,â€ it probably is.
Unlike many other â€œindependentâ€ 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.
