Our mission is to provide emerging filmmakers with a platform to launch impactful sports stories using the medium of film to inspire, educate, and bring people together.

Support this powerful programming by making a donation to ISFFH today!

After an incredible first year, the International Sports Film Festival Houston 2022 will have year-round programming and continue to build on the momentum from last year with our educational programming and the elevation of Houston’s presence in the sports and entertainment industries. We strongly believe film is the most powerful way to educate people on important issues.

We will start our educational programming by helping Holocaust Museum Houston students create short films on the 1936 Olympics, which will allow them to explore the relationship between Black and Jewish athletes and the impact sports has had in fighting racism and anti-semitism.

You don’t applaud a fish for swimming and you don’t applaud the justice system for providing justice.

But thankfully, today, we can breathe a sigh of relief.
