Established in 2011 by Matt & Joy Thayer of Speropictures as a place for our students to showcase their films, FFF has quickly grown into a local leader in all things film. Our team works each year in tandem with other local & state organizations to attract filmmakers to the region, highlight the incredible weather and natural resources as well as the unique shooting locations that Northern California has to offer.

We are actively involved in cultivating a vibrant community of diverse filmmaking talent who are committed to mastering their crafts. The Firereel Film Festival is an Oscar-esque event, complete with skits, costume changes and a full-on red carpet awards ceremony. We accept films from all over the world in our extravagant event.
