The Tampa Bay Film Society has partnered with the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival. Tampa Bay Film Society members will receive discounts on tickets and submission fees.


The 2017 Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival will be held November 30 to December 1 in Tampa, Florida.

TBUFF is an all-genre festival and plays both shorts and features, including narratives and documentaries.

Film festival selection is by nature a subjective process so it’s difficult to put a finger on exactly what we’re looking for – it’s just like Potter Stewart said: we’ll know it when we see it.

Submissions are currently OPEN for TBUFF 2017 through both Withoutabox and FilmFreeway with a final deadline in early October and the schedule expected to be released in late October.
