PUFF x imseDOME
PUFF (Pineapple Underground Film Festival)
Juicy & Spiky: that's what PUFF films are all about - a critical counterweight to main stream thinking, mass media and cinema spectacles that we sometimes are forced to consume.
PUFF is indie filmmaking at its best; with stories that ignite the senses and provoke the emotions. We look for filmmakers that defy the status quo in how a story can be told, or how a film can be produced or financed.
Showcasing Passions: PUFF has the spirit of a world citizen. We are based in the international financial city of Hong Kong and we have worked with filmmakers from over 30 countries. PUFF films had screened in many amazing locations , including the film tent at a local music festival, The HKU Black Box Theatre, Run Run Shaw Theatre and most recently at the CAFA Museum.
PUFF x imseDOME 2018
Selected filmmaker works from [PUFF] Pineapple Underground Film Festival based on the theme of IMMERSION, SUBMERSION, DIVERSION. Curated by Gary Sze, programmer of PUFF.
It is our ability to imagine that enables us to escape the mundane chores of daily life. Cinematic art has always been utilised as one of the most prominent launching pads for our imagination. Now a new kid on the block - VR technology, is readied to join force to unleash the power of our minds. To celebrate the immersive 360º experience of the imseDOME, PUFF has lined up a program of cutting edge independent films that revolve around the theme of the “other-worldy”. See what these up-and-coming filmmakers from around the world are doing with this century old art form in the age of VR technology and imagine a near future where these two disciplines will fuse together to truly blow our minds away.
