Let's Go!

BUFF Returns to Harvard Square March 20-24, 2019

”A shining beacon of the weird, the wonderful, the nasty, the niche, and the eclectic.“

Winner of Boston Magazine's
Best of Boston® 2018 – Best Film Festival

“Staying ahead of the curve is no small feat—but this plucky homegrown cine-fiesta has been doing it for 20 years and shows no sign of losing its knack for trendspotting.”

Days Until BUFF 2019

  • NSFW...NSFL!! Welcome to the midnight shorts program DARK [MID]NIGHT OF THE SOUL. A place where the odd children come to play. These disparate short films capture the true spirit of “underground” however one seeks to define the term. Ranging from sophomorically silly to seductively sublime to deeply disturbing, these mini-movies represent what is perhaps the purest form of filmmaking, completely detached from any commercial interests. The raw filmmaking talent on display here should satiate even the most maudlin motherfuckers jaded by the state of modern mainstream cinema. 18+ only.⠀

  • Love, loss, madness, joy, these are a few of our favorite themes in this year's animated shorts block, A LOT LIKE LIFE. Stop motion, pastel-on-paper palimpsest, 2D + 3D computer animation, and cut paper dig deep into life's darkest, most mysterious corners. Def not for kiddos. 👻👾💀⠀

  • 🤖 Lovers of #robots and contemplative sci-fi short films, gather round: A SYNTHETIC KIND OF LOVE screens @BrattleTheatre on Wednesday March 20th at 5:00 PM! As the Singularity gets ever-nearer, now is the time to contemplate the philosophical impacts of the human-machine relationship. Four robots grapple with the human complexities of religion, love, friendship, and what it means to be alive. Co-presented by @bostonscifi.⠀
