Experience new works by student filmmakers at the 2024 Film Fest @ UC Davis. Now back in person, the festival will be held May 16 and 17 at the Varsity Theatre in downtown Davis.  

“We are so grateful to be able to present this year’s festival in person after two years of being virtual,” said Christine Davis, publicity director for Film Fest. “Returning to an in-person event adds excitement and enthusiasm for the screenings as the filmmakers experience an audience’s reaction to their work.” 

Film Fest showcases films that are eight minutes or less and have been created by undergraduate or graduate students and recent graduates. The films include a variety of genres and styles, from narrative to documentary to experimental, with a different program each evening.

Screenings are at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. 

Established in 2000 in the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance, the festival was founded by students involved in filmmaking (with other departments joining later). Alumni filmmakers have gone on to submit works to numerous regional film festivals. 

The festival is co-produced by the UC Davis departments of Art and Art History, Cinema and Digital Media, Design, Music, and Theatre and Dance, which are part of the College of Letters and Science.
