Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes



Presenting the website


The Montreal Underground Film Festival

(english below)

MUFF est une célébration du cinéma indépendant, beau et vrai. MUFF aime les artistes qui osent emmerder la norme et qui dégueulent sur Hollywood. MUFF existe pour vous éblouir, pour vous casser les oreilles et pour vous faire venir! Ouvrez grands les yeux, on arrive.

Note: Un film expérimental est un film qui n’est ni structuré comme une fiction narrative ni comme un documentaire. Les théoriciens du cinéma considèrent le cinéma expérimental ou d’avant-garde comme l’un des modes d’expression principaux en cinéma, au même titre que les films narratifs, les documentaires et, les avis divergent sur ce point, les films d’animation.

Comme le laisse entendre le terme, le cinéma expérimental vise souvent, mais pas obligatoirement, à tester la réaction des spectateurs envers certaines performances ou présentations que l’on ne retrouve pas dans le cinéma grand public. Ces films sont habituellement avant-gardistes et peuvent choquer ou surprendre le spectateur, intentionnellement ou non. Le cinéma d’avant-garde est souvent plus étroitement lié aux autres arts visuels et à leurs avant-gardes que les autres approches cinématographiques.


MUFF celebrates and promotes low-budget filmmakers and those who challenge the boundaries of mainstream Hollywood and the conventional film aesthetic attitude. We encourage you to confront your artistic freedom, through the experimentation of filmmaking and art production, making the world a more exciting, challenging place to live.

"An experimental film is a film organized neither as narrative fiction nor as non-fiction. As such, film scholars consider the experimental or avant-garde film to be one of the major modes of filmmaking, along with the narrative film, the documentary film and arguably animation ."

As the term suggests, the experimental film is often but not necessarily made to test an audience's reaction to certain performances or types of presentation not normally found in mainstream cinema. Such films are usually avant-garde and may shock or surprise their viewers, intentionally or otherwise. Of all of cinema, experimental film tends to have the closest relationship to the other visual arts and their avant-gardes.

We want to expose your 'MUFF' of visual EX-PARA-MENTAL film, video, sound, and even a little performance art to a numbed, oblivious and quite brainwashed culture of hungry fleshy pods (humans that is). So hit us with your best shot and come forth with the goods. EXPOSE YOURSELF!!!
