Calgary Underground Film Festival

What's New — By mattmcpherson on April 13, 2011 at 5:32 pm

The Plaza Theatre in Kensington is proud to host the Calgary Underground Film Festival this week, from April 11 to 17.  This non-profit festival brings rare, independent films of all genres to the Calgary movie scene. If you’re into horror, sci-fi, comedy, musicals, etc., then this festival is a must. The festival is also a showcase for the movie-making artists, many of whom are local and others are international. Some titles of note: The People vs. George Lucas (a look at how fans of Indiana Jones and Star Wars feel about the man who created both); Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Party (a celebration of Saturday morning cartoons); Superheroes (a look inside the world of real-life caped crusaders and the cultural forces that created a movement). There are many other films to check out. See the official website for more details.
