The Brisbane Underground Film Festival is one of the newest underground fests on the block, celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2015. It also exists almost entirely as a passion project by festival director Nina Riddel, who founded, programs and runs the fest entirely by herself. A daunting task indeed!

This is the first year that Riddel has taken to crowdfunding to help defray some of BUFF’s costs next year. Contributions via Indiegogo will go towards “screening fees for the films, shipping, equipment, projection staff, printing and distributing the program, and a small amount of promotion.”

Riddel programs great films every year, bringing wonderfully weird, exotic and fun cinematic experience to a part of the world where these types of fantastic movies would otherwise would not be shown. In the past, she has programmed films such as Jeffrey Schwarz‘s awesome documentary I Am Divine, Usama Alshaibi‘s spiritual drama Profane; plus comedies like Zach Clark‘s White Reindeer and Drew Tobia‘s See You Next Tuesday.

So please help the fest — and Nina — out by kicking in a few bucks, helping bring great films to audiences who need to see them.
