The Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF), produced by IFP Chicago, showcases defiant and offbeat cinema. Sometimes subversive, often alluring and never dull, CUFF’s programming challenges the tired, the market-driven and the predictable works that dominate film. CUFF celebrates the adventurous, experimental works that keep film artistic, aesthetic and just plain fun. With five full days of screenings, panel discussions, parties and live music, CUFF is one of Chicago’s most anticipated cross-cultural events.
