51st Annual Film Festival Co-Directors:

Created by two Humboldt State University students in 1967, we are an international, short film festival which that is planned and produced annually by undergraduate students in a film festival course. Entries range from 1-30 minutes in the following genres: animation, experimental, documentaries, and narrative (fiction). Independent filmmakers of all ages and from all over the world are encouraged to enter the festival. After entries are screened and judged by students, results are tabulated and finalists selected. Each spring, with film industry guest artists as judges, the finalists are screened over three evenings and winners are announced and screened on the last night of the festival. Financial awards are given in all categories, including the Best of Fest winner. All screenings are open to both the university and local community.
As a university-sponsored event, we are a not-for-profit organization.
