Background

The Riber Award had its official beginning in 2002 but dates back to the time when film production became a part of the education program at Humanistic Informatics. The idea for a short film festival came from the tutor corps at Humanistic Informatics, who wanted to pay tribute to the unconventional and creative examination form. This tribute began at a very low practical level for example in connection with the annual Christmas party. But all this changed in 2002 when a group of students at Humanistic Informatics devised the idea of upgraded this tribute to a short film festival. The first couple of years the short film festival took place at the concert hall at the student house in Aalborg. The Riber Award quickly created so much media attention that Aalborg University began supporting the project in the hope that it could continue for many years to come. As the short film festival grow bigger and bigger it also became necessary to find larger and larger locations where it was possible to hold the event.
