CUFF (Community Underground Film Festival) is an annual festival and competition that takes place each year on the campus of Community College of Philadelphia. We seek to promote and foster the development of student AND community filmmaking, as well as the appreciation of film as a relevant and dynamic form of expression. Along with the competition, we program a number of talks by film professionals and film scholars, and we present screenings of relevant features and documentaries.

Selected films will be featured in a live screening at the festival on FEBRUARY 7, 2019.
Winners of the competition in each category will receive $100 in addition to the live screening. A grand jury prize of $200 is awarded to the short film that the judges deem the best in the competition.
The Narrative and Documentary categories are open to all films, 10 minutes or shorter.
However, in order to submit in the CCP Student category, the filmmaker must be a current student at the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) with an active J number.
