Supported By:

The first annual Houston International Sports Film Festival will debut June 4-6, 2021!

We are looking for stories that go beyond the field and show the relationship between sports and life. HISFF founder, Josh Merwin, is proud to present this game changing festival.

Our mission is to provide emerging filmmakers with a platform to launch and make a positive impact in people’s lives through the power of film.

We will launch with Josh Merwin’s film A Gift For Life to make a major impact for Organ Donor Awareness.

We will also have a programming track that celebrates the history of the Athlete Activists, continuing the conversation of racial equality.
