Calgary Underground Film Festival Unveils 2016 CUFF.Docs Lineup
Published Oct 31, 2016While the Calgary Underground Film Festival already treated Albertan film fanatics to an impressive showing earlier this year, they'll return with another edition of their weekend-long CUFF.Docs mini-fest next month.
The fourth annual edition of CUFF.Docs will screen 12 films in Calgary from November 17 to 20. All of the events will take place at the Globe Cinema.
Today, organizers announced the full lineup and, as could be expected, it's quite a doozy. As festival director and programmer Brenda Lieberman said, "Every year the diversity of documentary filmmaking is so strong in terms of the themes explored, styles and genres. But what really sets this year's lineup apart is how strong and impactful each and every one of these documentaries is."
The festival includes the movie poster movie 24x36, the KKK exposé Accidental Courtesy, the swing dance film Alive and Kicking, an exploration of cinematographer Kirsten Johnson in Cameraperson, the Mediterranean wave-rider flick Gaza Surf Club and the Christine Chubbock character study Kate Plays Christine.
Further, the fest follows a man who routinely impersonates New York busdrivers in Off the Rails, documents the life of graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister in The Happy Film, follows American sports in the dwarf community with The Hollywood Shorties, explores Holocaust humour in The Last Laugh, digs into Japan's greatest rock band with We Are X and unravels the artistic knitting community in Yarn.
