By students, for students...
Mission Statement: Northern California Student Film Festival hopes to ease the stress and academic pressure of students and turn it into creative and inspirational content. NCSFF was founded with the idea that all students should be able to show their films and actors should be appreciated in a collaborative environment. Many students are incredibly talented, but may not have the ability to show their films in a large, advertised setting. We hope to provide that safe space for students to show their films and win awards for their work.
