The UP Cineastes' Studio was formed on September 24, 1984. It started out as an organization just for film students of the University of the Philippines Diliman. But later on, it expanded to include students from the College of Home Economics, College of Education, College of Engineering, College of Business Administration, and other UP Diliman colleges as well.
 
  
Ever since its conception, UP Cineastes' Studio has been upholding the art of filmmaking. The organization is well-known for its continuous film exhibitions in the past years, and now for its tie-ups with the UP Film Institute in holding events such as the UP Film & Video Festival for independent amateur/professional filmmakers, the Black Beret Film Festival for student filmmakers, Russian Film Festival, Fade to Black, the 16mm Film Festival and It’s A Wrap.

U.P. Cineastes' Studio (pronounced as si-ne-yasts), is the first film organization for students in the Philippines, established on September 24, 1984, preceding that of the film department of the [[College of Mass Communication]]. It started out as an organization just for film students of the [[University of the Philippines Diliman]]. But later on, it expanded to include students from other colleges as well.
  
The goal of the organization has always been to uphold cinema, particularly local cinema. Also to initiate activities that would elevate the knowledge and craftsmanship in our field of endeavor, and to promote fellowship among film students. And through the years, it can be said that the UP Cineastes' Studio has been steadfast in realizing these goals. In so doing, the organization is now considered an instrumental factor in the continuous promotion of film appreciation and awareness in the UP Diliman community.

As the premiere student film organization in the country, it is our primary goal to be steadfast in promoting film appreciation and literacy.

The University of the Philippines Cineastes' Studio, commonly known as UP Cineastes' Studio or UP Cineastes, is a non-stock, non-profit, duly-recognized, university-wide student film organization based at the UP College of Mass Communication, University of the Philippines Diliman, committed to serve the film community and promote film awareness, appreciation and understanding, and as well as to other forms of artistic expression.

UP Cineastes' Studio is active in promoting literacy in film and other arts through workshops, publications, contests, screenings, thesis exposures, and academic tie-ups. Throughout the years, it has gained recognition as the first and premiere student film organization in the country.

The collection of videos will have a screening in a public venue wherein audiences from all walks of life will share a unique film viewing experience. To top it all off, each of the finalist’s films will be scored live by musicians during the awards night. As such, Haute Auteur continuously challenges budding filmmakers to go beyond and see how far sheer visuals can take them. As of A.Y. 2016-2017, Haute Auteur is being reevaluated in order to better cater to the needs of the film community.
