Films are pre-screened and rated by HSU students over several months, then presented to the public and a panel of professional judges during the festival.

The free, public event will feature three nights of back-to-back film screenings. “Best of the Fest” winners will be screened and announced at an awards ceremony Saturday, April 20.

Each year, independent filmmakers from around the world enter the festival in four categories: experimental, animation, documentary and narrative. Films are pre-screened and rated by HSU students over several months, then presented to the public and a panel of professional judges during the festival.

This year’s judges include director Corey Grant and producer Chavez Frazier, whose independent film “Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes” was shot in Humboldt and Del Norte counties in 2011. Filming for the “Bigfoot” sequel is scheduled to begin in June.

Corey and Chavez will also lead an audience question and answer session before each screening. Screenings begin at 7 p.m. every night and are held in the Van Duzer Theatre.

HFF Screening Schedule:

This year’s student co-directors are Alicia Flores, Danielle Durand, and Zane Krakowski. The Humboldt Film Festival is dubbed the “oldest-student-run festival in the world” by organizers. For more information, call (707) 826-4113, visit hsufilmfestival.com or e-mail filmfest@humboldt.edu
