About the Club
The HIFF has been bringing independent and alternative short films to Humboldt County for 48 years. As the world’s oldest student-run film festival, we create a unique venue for digital media that enjoys an international reputation for supporting and celebrating independent filmmakers. Founded in 1967 by a group of film-loving Humboldt State University students, the Humboldt Film Festival continues to expand over the years, now featuring several days of public screenings, workshops, and presentations by guest filmmakers. The festival promotes the art of film, not only as a means of entertainment, but also as a instrument for self-expression, and a stimulus for dialogue about social, political, and cultural issues.
HIFF is pleased to provide a home where these international filmmakers can showcase their visions, and the venue for all of us to explore the power of film.
