Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival
Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival is a five-day experimental cultural event focused on underground film and music in Lausanne, on the shore of Lake Geneva.
Bringing experimental films and music to new audiences
The festival, originally inspired by the New York Underground Film Festival, aims to present films and music that typically exist outside the mainstream profit-driven forums. Therefore, the films and music at Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival (LUFF) tend to be extremely experimental in character, bringing new insights to its attendees, perhaps leading them to question their existing understanding of film and music.
Not only is the festival about introducing new films and music to wider audiences, but it also regards its annual competition as a very important strand of the festival and its identity. These monetary prizes support up-and-coming film makers in their continuing endeavours. There’s also a satellite programme parallel to the official festival agenda, offering free performances.
Lausanne Underground Film Music Festival locations
Films are typically shown during the day and night, while music is performed across four concert nights in the Salle des Fêtes at Casino de Montbenon near the lake, which is typically regarded as the festival hub.
Other festival venues include:
- La Romandie rock club
- Le Zinema and Bellevaux independent movie theatres
- La Datcha cultural cafe
- La Librarie Humus book store
- Standard Deluxe gallery.
