Calgary Underground 2023: Curtain Raiser

Contributing Writer; Toronto, Canada (@triflic)


With the Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF) getting underway today, and continuing until April 30, we are pleased to offer a sampling of the more sumptuous genre, documentary and live event offerings over the next 11 days.

The festival is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, and is back in full swing in the double-decker Globe Cinema in the heart of Calgary.

Scroll through the gallery below for some highlights, and check back in these pages for coverage over the coming days.

The opening night film, Onyx The Fortuitous And The Talisman of Souls, elevates Andrew Bowser's infamous, often viral, YouTube character of 'Weird Satanist Guy' into a full-blown, reference-heavy horror-comedy. Bringing an 80s shoestring vibe, along with Re-Animator veterans Barbara Crampton and Jeffrey Combs, this should be a hoot with a well-seasoned, in-the-know, festival audience.
