About HUFF

HUFF 2023 Poster

The 3rd annual Houston Underwater Film Festival (HUFF) is April 29-30 at the Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (MATCH). Performances are at 3:00 PM each day. This trailer is composed of a selection of clips taken from about 1/2 of the films that will be screened. The Saturday event has 3 categories: “Made in Texas”, “Art House Flicks” and “Protect and Respect the Oceans”. Sunday’s showing features “Shorts”, “Animation and Dance” and “Feature Length” films. Over the two days, we will show 61 films from more than 22 countries. Each day closes with a raffle to benefit the HUFF with some awesome prizes including dive travel, dive photographic equipment, works of art, books and more. Raffle tickets are 3/$5 — must be present to win! After the Saturday screening and raffle, we will adjourn to the Brass Tap across the street for an informal “meet the filmmakers” event.  After the Sunday event, there is a reception in the Gallery of the MATCH where we honor the winners (selected by real-time anonymous audience vote) and hold the raffle. Entry to the reception is free, but there is a ticket required for the buffet. Being creatures of habit, some of us are likely to wander across the street again to the Brass Tap after the reception. Make plans to join us for this unique event that showcase all things relating to the underwater world from the beauty of the Oceans and coral reefs to fresh water to animation and underwater dance. Ticket information and more can be found at huff.hups.org The HUFF is a non-profit event and is run by volunteers from the dive community. It is supported by the Houston Underwater Photographic Society as well as dive clubs, individuals, the international dive community and  businesses. Thanks to all for their tremendous efforts and support!
