On Tuesday, February 7 the Calgary Underground Film Festival and CBC Calgary are presenting a special event to celebrate homegrown talent, and screen a sneak peek of two upcoming episodes of the CBC original comedy series RUN THE BURBS at Globe Cinema.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Following a screening of RUN THE BURBS Season 2 Episodes 6 & 7, show creators Andrew Phung & Scott Townend will join us for an In Conversation moderated by CUFF Lead Programmer Brennan Tilley. The Alberta filmmakers first got involved in filmmaking at CUFF's 48-Hour Filmmaking Challenge and have been collaborators ever since. After watching the new episodes, CUFF will host a candid conversation about getting your start as an indie Alberta filmmaker to the lessons learned creating, developing, and starring in a national TV show.
ABOUT THE SHOW
