CUFF Sponsors Film at Calgary Int'l Film Festival with Director attending!

The Calgary Underground Film Festival would like you to meet Ryan Avery screening Friday September 26 at CIFF

CALGARY, AB In conjunction with this year's Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF), The Calgary Underground Film Festival (CUFF) is proud to present the Canadian Premiere of Hi My Name is Ryan, along with a special visit from attending director Stephen Rose.

The film's subject, Ryan Avery, is determined to make his life super-awesome. Faced with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, the milk and cookies connoisseur cum punk rock performance artist, displays behaviour that stretches far beyond the typical teenager.

CUFF's Festival Director, Brenda Lieberman, is excited about the collaboration between Calgary's two premier film festivals. "Hi My Name is Ryan is the type of film that we would program for the underground film festival. CUFF and CIFF both bring in world-class independent films that Calgarians would not normally get to see. We hope that our members and CIFF fans alike will come and check it out."

Hi My Name is Ryan screens at the Uptown Theatre Friday on 7:15 pm Friday September 26th and again on Saturday September 27th at 12:00 pm.
