Held each year, the LUFF is a film festival and music festival devoted to underground film and music. It began with the formation of the LUFF Association For The Promotion of Independent Cinema.
The festival thus rests on a not-for-profit group with an artistic mission. The primary goal of the LUFF is to present films that are generally unknown to the mainstream public, often experimental films. Films are screened during the day and evening, followed by live events featuring underground musicians at night. Three prizes are awarded by the festival, in order to support the filmmakers in creating their art.
