Unobstructed View and the Calgary Underground Film Festival launch Affiliate Program


Calgary, Canada (March 3, 2020) – The Calgary Underground Film Festival has made Unobstructed View its official ecommerce vendor for DVDs and Blu-rays in a unique cross-promotional association created by both parties that launches March 3, 2020.

CUFF’s growing community will be offered exclusive discounts and offers on home entertainment from some of the greatest active curated libraries including the Criterion Collection, Arrow Video, Kino Lorber, Severin, Vinegar Syndrome, Synapse and many others.  In exchange, Unobstructed View and its site will have full time and real time affiliation with one of Canada’s most prestigious film festivals for fans of cult classics, old and new.

“We know our community of fans and festival goers love the film options from these various libraries, and the passion for collecting thrives. We are excited to partner with Unobstructed View, and thrilled to see our fans benefit from this unique partnership!” said Brenda Lieberman, CUFF’s Festival Director and Programmer.

“We have been in business for over 25 years, and it has taken us a while to get our act to the level where CUFF would entertain such an arrangement, so we are going to be amping up our game accordingly,” said UV founder and President Jonathan Gross. “You have to truly create relationships with your customers where they live in the current retail environment and this is an important first step.”

UV will have visibility at this year’s festival, which runs from April 20 – 26. CUFF will have dedicated content on and presence in promotional correspondence as applicable for the term of the contract.

The deal was put together by CUFF director Brenda Lieberman and UV President Jonathan Gross and UV’s Vice President of Distribution and Marketing Kerry Kupecz.
