Did you know that Calgary has DOZENS of film festivals?  It’s true. If I could show you all the press releases I get in my email, you’d be amazed.

But never before has Calgary had a documentary film festival, enter: CUFF DOCS.   A spin-off of sorts of the uber-popular Calgary Underground Film Festival, CUFF DOCS kicks off on November 21st and fills your weekend nine different documentaries and a handful of shorts.

You can check out the line up online, but there are some of my favourites that I can’t wait to see at the Globe Cinema. (Which is licensed by the way.)

Finding Vivian Maier

In the modern world, where everyone fancies themselves a photographer, this documentary about a humble and secretive woman, who became a world wide phenomenon after her death, looks fascinating.

Birth Of The Living Dead

While not literally, zombies have essentially taken over pop culture, it’s amazing to see where they come from in the first place. You can’t think of zombies without thinking of George A. Romero, this documentary will tell you why.

Cutie and the Boxer

Truthfully, I have not always understood art, but I appreciate and I’m thankful for those who do. While Ushio and Noriko Shinohara might be famous to some, it’s their love and the way they love that makes this documentary look so fascinating. With the pressure to sell, evolve and be motivated, how does a couple do it while working together? Looks like a must watch to me!
