The Oldest Student Run Film Festival
in the World!
Our mission at the Humboldt Film Festival is to expose independent filmmaking to a diverse range of viewers, and to break away from mainstream filmmaking; thus coming forth with a deeper appreciation for this medium of cinema as a whole. That being said, we also want to enrich educational experiences and learning opportunities for HSU students by allowing them to focus their creative and productive energies on the development and presentation of the world’s oldest student-run film festival. The integrity of the festival is built on the unique blend of academic interests, cultural backgrounds, and the creative talents of the students. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that the festival maintains its longstanding tradition as a student-run event - a designation that helps it stand out among a sea of similar festivals. The Humboldt Film Festival serves as a vehicle for the exhibition of such independent films and DV works that are commonly regarded as an art form rather than a commercial venture; and unlike commercial films, which often target a specific audience for monetary gain, the independent world of filmmakers must finance much of its own work to secure an audience for it.

About the Club
We are an international festival, and showcase films and animated shorts from every continent that can’t be found anywhere else. Throughout the year, we will also be hosting many fundraising events that will all be film related.
Look for us at the clubs fairs and through out the community.
The Humboldt Film Festival has been bringing independent and alternative short films to Humboldt County for forty-five years. As the world’s oldest student-run film festival we have created a unique venue for traditional films and alternative digital media that enjoys an international reputation for supporting and celebrating independent filmmakers working in traditional, experimental and non-traditional modes. Founded in 1967 by a group of film-loving Humboldt State University students the Humboldt Film Festival has expanded over the years to feature several days of public screenings, workshops and presentations by guest filmmakers each spring. The festival promotes the art of film, not only as a means of entertainment, but also as a vehicle for self-expression and a stimulus for dialogue about social, political and cultural issues.
