What is BUTFF?

The Dutch film festival for B-movies, Underground & Trash Films!

Five days' worth of films filled with violence, absurdity, creativity and corniness.

We are looking for visitors who... :

• Aren't likely to scream at the sight of blood!
• Will be able to admire creativity to absurd extremes!
• Like to combine a cozy atmosphere with watching films!

At our festival we will exclusively show B-movies, Underground films and Trash Films.

B-MOVIES

B-movies were created as a by-product of the Hollywood studio system and have evolved into a unique genre. Bad actors, unintentionally funny lyrics, crappy special effects, dangerous stunts, bad directing and lots of shooting, tits and helicopters. Or a lot of fake blood.

UNDERGROUND MOVIES

Underground films are extreme films in images or content. They explore the limits of permissible and defy the generally accepted morality. They are often tied to a certain scene or group of filmmakers.

TRASH MOVIES

Trash films are very cheaply made B-movies. DIY cinema at its best, filmmakers who are not bothered by any lack of talent or skill, but just get the job done in one way or the other. Paper mache, fake intestines and lots of ketchup. Films where the quality will not be found in the special effects budget, outstanding acting performances or even a coherent story, but rather in the unconventional. Unconventional techniques, presentation or content which bog-standard cinemas would not dare show on their screens.

…SCARED YET?

No…? Excellent! Because at our festival we challenge you to see films made by young, experimental and passionate filmmakers who aim to tickle your senses in a way that is different from your regular Hollywood movie. Should you still let out a scream during the performance, though, no worries. We'll just crank up the volume so that no one can hear you.

MUSIC, POETRY, PERFORMANCE & ARTS

Aside from films, we also have an extensive programme of shows, exhibitions and workshops. In part due to our wide spectrum of side activities, BUTFF is know as a great place for lovers of alternative music, petry and (performance) art.

RETROSPECTIVE

Every year, BUTFF honours an actor, director or producer who has played an important part within our subculture. Examples include Albert Pyun (2013), Jörg Buttgereit (2010) or the King of Trash, John Waters (2009). And a year before him, we looked back on the works of David Cronenberg, Cyrus Frisch and Wenzel Storch. See: Awards.

INTERNATIONAL

Directors, producers and actors from all over the world have been known to flock to our festival to shine a light on their work as our special guest. Examples from previous years include Fred Vogel, JT Petty, Andrew van den Houten, Lloyd Kaufman, Wenzel Storch, Christian Veil, Adam Wingard, Javi Camino, Barak Epstein, Nick Zedd and Remy Couture.

AWARDS

Every year the festival hands out several Awards for best director, best feature film, best short film, best student film and a groundbreaker award for a personality whose accomplishments stand out in our genres.
