We’ve been pretty open about the fact that we’re excited as hell to be media sponsors for the Calgary Underground Film Festival’s fifth annual CUFF.Docs event.
They are amazing people and it is an incredible festival, which this year features some fascinating documentary films from around the world gracing the screens of the Globe Cinema from Nov. 16 to 19.
Well to show you exactly how amazing they are and incredible it is they’ve been far too kind to us, giving theYYSCENE tickets for four of the festival screenings to give away to you.
The first is the Thursday opening night showing of the superb documentary Manson: The Voice of Madness, from Calgary director James “Buddy” Day, that questions the Helter Skelter narrative about convicted mass murderer Charles Manson. Filmmaker Day will be in attendance to answer all of the many questions you’ll have after seeing it.
The second film is a the American surf doc The Crest, which is having its Canadian premiere on the Friday night of the festival. Again, the film’s director Mark Covino will be in attendance.
Another Canadian premiere takes place on the Saturday afternoon and it’s one that vid game nerds will love. It’s The Power of Glove by Andrew Austin — who will also be at the screening — and it “chronicles the history and legacy of the Power Glove, a Nintendo controller that promised to forever change the way humankind interacted with technology.”
And finally, for those who love the rock and the roll, there’s the fantastic doc about oft forgotten but influential American punk act Jawbreaker called Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker. The screening is at 11:15 p.m. and perfect for the late-night crowd.
All amazing films.
