Over the last eighteen years, the Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival (LUFF) has been going to great - but exciting - pains to rub its audiences the wrong way and to offer original and off-the-wall programming. LUFF’s objective is to fuse music and cinema together into a chemistry of weirdness, drawing from a wide range of avant-garde artists and innovative creations which in most cases have never before been seen in Switzerland.
Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival, which takes place in the Swiss Film Archives and other venues of Lausanne, Switzerland, is dedicated to showcase and promote subversive films and music that do not benefit from wide distribution. In the course of its glorious history, LUFF has welcomed unmissable artists that broke the conventions of filmmaking.
Prestigious guests such as John Waters, Lydia Lunch, Amy Davis, Jon Moritsugu, Michael Snow, Mary Woronov, Holly Woodlawn, Jeff Perkins, Beth B, Richard Kern, Christina Lindberg, Lloyd Kaufman, Hisayasu Sato, Jello Biafra, Peaches Christ, Jean-Louis Costes, Elina Löwensohn, Peter Tscherkassky, Bruce La Bruce, Richard Tuohy, Wilhelm Hein, Valie Export, Crispin Glover, Khavn, Roland Lethem, … enlightened the festival with their very own presence.
