CUFFcade

For the fourth year, the Calgary Underground Film Festival will feature five custom arcade cabinets set up for the duration of the festival, on the mezzanine level of Globe Cinema. These arcade cabinets feature five new, independent video games. CUFFcade is the only curated arcade of its type in Canada.  CUFFcade runs throughout the festival and is free and open to the public. If you're not at the festival for a film, entrance to the games will be between film screenings, once the main box office lines have been let it.

More about CUFFcade: 
CUFFcade is an initiative which we started in 2015. Each year we will launch a new set of games at the April festival. These custom cabinets that house the games are portable and can be set up at off-season events. If you are interested in CUFFcade being a part of something in particular, please drop us a line!
