A festival wouldn't be complete with some of them. Technical shenanigans may let us down, and sometimes filmmakers show up last minute with an extra film.
The BUTCAVE program is online now.

When a collaboration is successful it needs to continue… so, once again, BUTFF and KOP have joined forces. This time KOP will arrange an exhibition that’s perfectly in style with this year’s BUTFF theme. The exhibition focuses on gender and sexuality, as we’re quite focused on those kind of topics nowadays. Last year there was the #MeToo campaign which hit many industries, including fine arts. John William Waterhouse’s Hylas and the Nymphs was removed from a museum because of its negative portrayal of women.
The Theta Girl
29 Aug. Nieuwe Veste 20:30h
Opening Night tickets
Low-budget filmmaking at its finest in this energetic punk rock, gory and sexy ode to exploitation cinema. A drug pusher of the new Theta drug finds out that its psychedelic qualities may invite evil, and that it may be up to her to stop it.
Christopher Bickel, 2017, 98 min.
The blocks of shorts are a wildly popular part of the BUT Film Festival and therefore always sold out. That’s why we’re offering anyone who missed out another chance to see the shorts in Block 1, 2, 3 and 4 on a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
There’s something for everyone in this pleasantly exhausting marathon session: over the top gore, absurd humor, alienating trash, unrestrained creativity and a large dose of films with a heightened BUT factor. In other words: all the news BUT has to offer in terms of shorts, all in one place.
Fri. 31-8, 19:00h Start GameJam
Sun. 2-9, 14:00h Presentation BUTgames
After last year’s success of the newly implemented element of (BUTworthy!) gaming at our festival, we ghouls decided to do it all again. We challenge game design veterans and NOOBS to break all boundaries and develop a game worthy of the BUT quality mark.
