The Pineapple Underground Film Festival “PUFF” is dedicated to showcasing the spirit, passion and the skills of filmmakers in China and around the world.

PUFF looks for films that break new grounds in their forms of narrative styles and celebrates the radical changes that the film genre are going through.   This year, PUFF 2013 call for submissions in 7 categories : Feature Film,  Feature Films ( Politics & Underground) , Short Films, Animation Spotlight, Feature Documentary,  Visual Art &Performance and PUFF Indie Sound & Original Score Showcase.    Results of the accepted films will be announced in mid-May 2013.

LOCATION :  The films will be screened at contemporary film & video space Experimenta, indie performance space Hidden Agenda,  new art and music interaction gallery XXX  and the historical performance centre The Fringe Club in Hong Kong.

Experimenta, one of our major venue partners and sponsors,  strives to become a crossroad in cinematic films and experimental films and videos. It is supported by a small group of dedicated patrons of the Experimenta Foundation in Hong Kong.
