HFI is a growth-oriented 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our vision is to become a globally-recognized, full-service film resource with specialties in education and production. Through the creation of original programming and concepts, HFI will serve as an authority to filmmakers worldwide. We will be an alternative choice because of our focus on student and independent content, rather than commercialization. HFI will collaborate on projects with local businesses, nonprofits, and educational institutions, establishing a close relationship with the community. HFI’s innovative programs and the Haydenfilms Online Film Festival shall provide a network to connect filmmakers with the stories, talents, and ideas of their peers from around the globe.
