Brisbane Powerhouse

Brisbane Underground Film Festival (BUFF) screens recent, weird, lowbudget, risky and overlooked films to people whose curiosity goes beyond the megaplex.

Defining underground movies as a mixture of highbrow (video art and experimental film) and lowbrow (gore and boobs), BUFF has no middle-of-the-road. You will be entertained, perhaps enlightened, and definitely exposed to the most interesting films around.


‘Zero Killed’ has been nominated for the Best International Feature Award at the Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, New York. The festival runs from October 17-21, 2012. The screening is on
