The South Carolina Underground Film Festival celebrates all genres of independent film in one festival. Taking place in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, SCUFF is truly an international film festival as we are seeking films from all over the globe. The SCUFF will be two packed days of indie films where fans and filmmakers can meet and mingle and celebrate obscure and independent film.

Besides promoting and showcasing the best in truly independent cinema from all around the globe, the SCUFF also promotes local filmmaking in SC. We will shine a special spotlight on SC produced films and filmmakers. South Carolina produced films and filmmakers will have an opportunity to have their works screened for a captive audience and we will feature special awards just for SC produced projects.

From the novice to the professional, from the student to the experimental filmmaker, SCUFF is seeking all type of films that may not be able to find an audience in more mainstream film festivals.

Drama, comedy, horror, action, animation, music videos, fake trailers, puppet shows, claymation, documentary, LGBT, and so on. If you can create it, we want to see it. The more obscure the better!

Do you have to ask yourself if your film is too much for our festival? If so then we definitely want to see it! Does your film push social boundaries? Would Sundance (or any mainstream festival in SC for that matter) laugh at you thinking you had a chance to get into their festival? Then we want your movie!

Q&A’s will follow screening with visiting filmmakers and actors. The festival will end on the second night with a big awards ceremony as we give out the SCUFF awards! Follow us on Facebook and we continue to make announcements until the festival arrives! Good luck and we can’t wait to see what you made!

The SCUFF wants to promote and nurture independent films and filmmakers. We want to expose to the world a whole new segment of cinema that they would never see anywhere else. Because of this our film festival is FREE to the public! We hope this will bring out lots of people to all the screenings and create a fun and festive environment for not only the attendees but also visiting filmmakers.
