We’re changing things around this year. Every filmmaker who submits by the deadline (September 15th at 3pm) will have the opportunity to buy tickets, but will no longer receive complimentary tickets to HUMP! just for submitting. If your film is selected for inclusion in the festival, you will receive two complimentary tickets to a HUMP! screening in the city closest to you. If your film is not selected, we will set aside a pair of tickets for you to purchase. Bottom line: all filmmakers will have the chance to buy tickets before the public buys them all.

Friends & Family Tickets

Filmmakers are encouraged to advise their friends and fans to purchase tickets immediately, as many of the popular screenings may be sold out or close to selling out. We do not reserve seats for large groups so they should arrive early enough to claim their preferred seating if they wish to sit with a group.

Release Forms & Entry Forms

You must provide a release form signed by every performer in your film in addition to a valid ID. All performers must be over 18 years of age. The party who signs the entry form will receive the promotional code for complimentary tickets. See the “Submit” page for forms and requirements.

Selections Announced:

Selections for 2016 HUMP! will be announced on the website near the end of October.

When will HUMP! winners be announced?

Whenever we have finished counting the mountain of audience ballots from screenings in the Opening Festival (Seattle, Olympia, and Portland), we will announce the results. Best estimate is the end of November.
