Hey you! Yeah, you!
Are you a movie lover? Are you a free things lover? Do you adore your city and are looking for a free local activity to beat your never-ending-winter blues? WOW, do I have the perfect festival for you! And don't worry, it's indoors - underground, even (haha).
The Calgary Underground Film Festival is happening this week, April 16-22, and you definitely need to check it out. They are showing 32 feature films, all of which are complete masterpieces. From horror, to sci-fi, to documentary, they've got everything. It's the perfect place to go with your film buff friends this week, or to take your date to show them that you're artsy.
Oh, and did I mention that they're having a free screening on April 18 for Canada's National Film Day? It's the perfect excuse to take a guilt-free break from the studying grind and hole up in a dark theatre with buckets of popcorn.
Plus, tickets for the other screenings are so cheap you'll be coming back for more. With $10 regular admission and $8 for students, you don't have an excuse not to get out and enjoy this once-a-year opportunity! And if you're a total film buff, you'll be all over these cool titles.
Here are some of the feature films being premiered at this year's festival:
