The 14th Annual 2019 Huntington Beach Film Festival hosts 2 days of feature and short films, including comedies, dramas, documentaries, animated and international films, with many screenings accompanied by Q&A's from the filmmakers. 

The Festival will be held September 28 & 29 from 11 am - 8:00 pm at the Huntington Beach High School Historic Theater, 1905 Main St., Huntington Beach CA 92648.

Tickets are $5 for individual films, $12 for an all-day Saturday pass and $20 for a 2-day festival pass at There is a 50% discount for seniors and students.

Screening 49 films from 12 countries and over a dozen films from Huntington Beach and Orange County filmmakers, The Huntington Beach Film Festival will culminate on the evening of the 29th with awards given for Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary, Best Short, Best Direction and The Viewer's Choice Award, among others.

The Festival is dedicated to presenting films from under-represented artists including women and minority filmmakers with its 2019 motto: "More Voices. More Stories." Highlights include Once Upon a River, by first-time feature writer/director Haroula Rose, based on the best-selling novel by Bonnie Jo Campbell as well as LA filmmaker/actor Darryl Dillard's Who’s With Me? who uses spoken word/poetry to confront police brutality against African-Americans.

Local filmmakers featured at this year's festival include Jonathan Graham, a student at Cal State Fullerton and his submission, Feeding a Cause; Huntington Beach's Russell Emanuel for The Assassin's Apprentice as well as 12 year old student filmmaker Ella McKeon for Butterfly.

Again this year, HB Film Fest will showcase examples of the thriving and vibrant Iranian cinema such as Summer Snow by Amin Chedegani. Iranian films are often unable to be screened in the U.S. because of American sanctions against Iran. 

Finally, as part of the Southern California scene, the HB Film Fest is proud to feature several surf and ocean themed films including Paddling for Happiness,which follows war veteran Martin Pollock and the healing power of waves and surfing, Of the Sea, a feminists quest to raise awareness of plastic consumption, and The Forgotten Archipelago, which chronicles a group of surfers facing harsh climates and challenging travel in order to surf a sparsely populated island in the South Atlantic.
