Thank you for your interest in submitting your film to the 17th Calgary Underground Film Festival, taking place April 20-26, 2020.

Heading into our 17th year, CUFF is now Western Canada’s premiere genre festival and welcomes almost 8,000 fans and industry guests and to the festival each year.   

SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2020 FESTIVAL ARE NOW CLOSED. We accept submissions through Film Freeway or Zone Festival, with links to the forms below.

We love all genres, and screen a variety of films from documentary to narrative, animation and occasionally music videos. However, we do not screen experimental, non-narrative films. In terms of length, we do not accept mid-length films (30 - 60 minutes). 

Our entry fees are low, with no charges at all for Canadian productions of any length. You will find two ways to submit below: the International Form and Canadian Form. We encourage all filmmakers, production companies and distributors to submit their work. Submission fees for International films are $40 features and $20 shorts.
