BUFS or the Berkeley Underground Film Society is an all ages club for collectors, researchers, and film enthusiasts in the East Bay and San Francisco area. Our goal is to review and share a selective film history of movies on film. Every Sunday, we screen buried, rarely projected, or otherwise obscure 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm prints in our collection.
