Calgary Underground Film Festival

Mon Apr 7 - Sun Apr 13

It's the 10th anniversary of this festival that showcases titles in all genres, from horror and sci-fi to fantasy and comedy, thrillers and music-related films. These movies including Mike Mendez's latest creature feature, Big Ass Spider, and Stand By Me meets Full Metal Jacket flick, I Declare War based on an innocent Capture the Flag game that explores the darker side of human nature. are the kind of movies that don't generally get played at the local multi-plex.

The films are shown at the Globe, but the week is full of parties happening in venues around the city.
