The Winnipeg Underground Film Festival is an annual showcase for contemporary experimental film + video art in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The next festival will take place June 1 - 3, 2018.

WUFF is seeking new and engaging moving-image works that deviate from traditional cinematic forms (whatever that means). Stronger consideration will be given to works under 30 minutes, and to those completed in 2016 or later, but exceptions may be made in both cases. If you think your movie is suited for our show, we'd like to see it; if you aren't sure, please check out our previous years' programs which are posted on our website.

WUFF is also interested in hearing proposals for performance and/or installation based work, and as always, we're also keeping an eye out for ultra-short 90-second-or-less films and videos for our perennial 90 Second program!

Rules + Guidelines:
*There are NO entry fees for artists,
$10 entry fee per title for distributors,
Maximum 3 entries per filmmaker,
Deadline for entry is March 31, 2018,
Have fun!

*WUFF is committed to paying screening fees to all participating artists and to maintaining a festival that is entry-fee free. That said, as we head into our sixth year without the funding we've relied on in the past, we are encouraging entrants to consider making a suggested $5-10 donation to our GoFundMe campaign at WWW.GOFUNDME.COM/WUFF6 or through our PayPal at opencitycinema@gmail.com in order to help us maintain this standard at our 2018 show. If you are unable to make a donation, we'd still love to see your work. If you've already donated to our campaign - thank you for your support! (Note that while WUFF is free for artists to enter, for distributors the $10 entry fee per title submitted is mandatory.)

Due to the volume of entries we received last year, going forward we will only be contacting filmmakers whose work has been selected for presentation at WUFF. All selected filmmakers will be notified of their acceptance by April 30, 2018. If you have not already done so, please consider making a donation along with your entry to our GoFundMe campaign at WWW.GOFUNDME.COM/WUFF6 or through our PayPal at opencitycinema@gmail.com. Thanks for your interest in WUFF!
