Whilst claims that the Brisbane Underground Film Festival is “the most fun you can have in a dark room with strangers” might be overstating things just a tad, there is no doubt that this showcase provides Brisbane film lovers with a chance to check out some of the more obscure, overlooked and otherwise inaccessible films from around the world.


To be staged over three nights at New Farm Cinemas, BUFF 2016 will again feature an eclectic collection of features and short films, including the critically acclaimed Nasty Baby starring Kristen Wiig.

The festival kicks off on Friday, February 5 with Uncle Kent 2, the sequel to a film nobody knows about in the first place, followed by the documentary feature Giuseppe Makes a Movie.

Saturday night’s program comprises Nasty Baby and Applesauce, while the final screenings on Sunday afternoon (February 7) will feature A Feast of Man and the Mexican drama 600 Miles. Each feature screening will be preceded by a short film.

This may well be the only opportunity for Brisbane filmgoers to see these films on the big screen, so why not broaden your horizons and watch something in the BUFF?
