The Chico Independent Film Festival seeks to support and develop the growth of independent filmmaking throughout California. CIFF’s mission statement is to promote the presentation of works by filmmakers and develop educational programs in Butte County, California.
CIFF melds local art and commerce with travel and tourism through Chico’s only independent film festival! The combination of local talent, virtual cooperative communities, and interactive collaboration with local commerce and tourism ensures a successful event that will continue to highlight Chico filmmakers and artists.
Chico independent filmmakers are in the fore front of analog and digital filmmaking. Our programming will support the evolution of independent filmmaking. CIFF allows several free film submissions from around United States and the World in order to assist artists that cannot afford this system.
