Call For Entries!

The 2007 Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF) has issued its call
for entries! CUFF presents a wide range of work exploring the many
definitions and interpretations of the concept of "underground". 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
(especially experimental, narrative, animation, and documentary), and
admits 16mm, 35mm, mini-dv and DVcam exhibition formats.

Founded in 1994, the Chicago Underground Film Festival is 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 "indie" film/video mainstream and to create a
community for makers and audiences of adventurous work that entertains,
pushes boundaries, challenges viewers and transcends expectations…if
you suspect your film is "underground," it probably is.

Unlike many other "independent" 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.

August 22-26, 2007 Chicago, IL

Earlybird Deadline May 1, 2007 ($30 Entry Fee)
Regular Deadline May 15, 2007 ($35 Entry Fee)
