CUFF.Docs documentary festival’s third year aims for quality in selections

CALGARY — CUFF.Docs, now going into its third year, boasts a strong lineup of 10 to 12 full-length features – as well as some extra shorts – that “both confirm and challenge beliefs, promoting a sense of wonder and a healthy skepticism.”

Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF) lead programmer Cameron Macgowan says there was “truly something for everybody this year.”

“What really excites me about the CUFF.Docs lineup is the sheer diversity of the films and filmmakers,” he says in an email. “We have everything from a beautiful documentary about loss from master performance artist Laurie Anderson, to the stunning Sundance award winner (T)error, to a first feature film from British Columbian filmmakers about the world’s most charming and perverted sandwich artist.”

Films confirmed for the festival include:

Welcome To Leith: Described as “terrifying and insightful,” the film follows white supremacist Craig Cobb and his attempt to take over the town of Leith in North Dakota.

Heart Of A Dog: American experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson directs this “essay film.” It’s Anderson’s rumination on subjects like death, loss and Buddhist teachings, while utilizing styles ranging from 8mm footage to animation.

Breaking A Monster: Follows the three tween boys from Unlocking the Truth, who you may remember as the subject of a 2007 viral video in which the trio played a heavy metal show in Times Square.
