In a world where anyone can and will post video on YouTube, it's handy to have someone sift through the many millions of moving images out there for you.

The Winnipeg Underground Film Festival attempts to serve this function. The second-annual festival, to be held Friday through Sunday at Frame Arts Warehouse, offers audiences a chance to see a curated collection of underground films from Canada, the U.S., Germany, the U.K, New Zealand and elsewhere.

The films were selected following an open call, festival programmer Rhayne Vermette said in a statement. She and her fellow organizers essentially sifted through masses of film to find some stuff worth watching.

The offerings at the festival include 90 Second, an assortment of very brief films (Friday at 7 p.m.), a selection of ever-popular feline videos called Cats Of The Avant Garde (Saturday at 7 p.m.) and A Flea's Skin, a documentary about little people invited to live in a Chinese amusement park and entertain the visitors (Sunday at 5 p.m.).

The full lineup can be found at www.winnipeguff.com. Weekend passes are $10 plus service charges at Music Trader in Osborne Village or Into The Music in the Exchange District.

The Frame Arts Warehouse is located at 318.5 Ross Ave., just west of the Exchange District.
