CUFFcade 2022

Calgary’s first independent video game arcade with custom-built cabinets!

Each April, the Calgary Underground Film Festival launches five new indie video games that are free to play, and they remain accessible at Globe Cinema throughout the year. These arcade cabinets feature five new, independent video games. CUFFcade is the only curated arcade of its type in Canada. Before the next film or special event you attend at Globe Cinema, stop by and play CUFFcade games free of charge.

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! The games are curated by Mike Lohaus.
