Featuring the best of non-fiction films yet to be screened in Calgary, join the Calgary Underground Film Festival for the fifth annual edition of CUFF.Docs.

Celebrating real life that’s worth watching, the festival has curated 14 international feature films in a variety of genres, subjects, and documentary styles, as well as a selection of shorts. These include the Alberta premieres of California Typewriter, Don’t Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker, and King Cohen.

Certain to be a highlight of the festival, don’t miss the Canadian premiere of Manson: The Voice of Madness from Calgary-based writer and director James Buddy Day. Narrated by Rob Zombie, Day spent a year interviewing Manson and tracking down members of the so-called Manson Family for the film.

CUFF.Docs runs November 16 to 19, 2017 at the Globe Cinema (617 8th Ave. SW). Head to for the full schedule.
