What It Is: Founded by Bay Area filmmakers, actors, and critics, the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival is devoted to catching promising independent films that tend to fall through the cracks. It give the creators a chance to see their work on the big screen, and it gives audiences a chance to see filmmakers push the boundaries of their art form. TBUFF has over 150 films of all genres: dramas, comedies, action, adventure, crime, musicals, horror, sci-fi, thrillers, fantasies, mysteries, romances, animation, religious, lgbt, foreign, documentaries, experimental and a few that are just plain bizarre.
Notable Films: Papa (a documentary about the Ernest Hemmingway lookalike contest in Key West), Beneath the Crown (a documentary about 1968 Miss Universe Sylvia Hitchcock who eventually settled in Lake Wales), Functional Fitness (a Tampa crossfit documentary), Love and Hostages (a Miami romantic comedy), Scathing (a Tampa horror feature)
Don’t Miss: Shooting Clerks, a meta-independent comedy that tells the true story of how Kevin Smith maxed out all his credit cards and enlisted his friends to make the grainy, $27,000 indie classic, Clerks. Executive-produced by Smith and features cameos by him and other Clerks cast members.
