Idaho Laugh Fest is the first and only comedy festival in Idaho, and is already one of the largest comedy festivals in the northwest, as host to over 70 performers in stand-up, improv, sketch & variety, live podcasts, and new this year - COMEDY SHORT FILMS!

We bring together all things funny for this 4-day event in Boise Idaho. Be a part of the experience as we team up with the Boise Film Fest to present comedy short films during this popular festival.

This is our first year including comedy short films! We are so excited about this addition.

We will be awarding 1 award, and hope to grow this portion of our festival in coming years.

AWARD TITLE - "Best of Idaho Laugh Fest"

These are comedy shorts, but as in all things comical, that's a pretty broad term. If it's funny to you, it might be funny to us. We are looking for variety, of course, and our only strict rule is that your film should be NO LONGER than 20 minutes in total length.

    Great communication. They kept in touch and answered all my emails very quickly. I didn't get to go to this myself but sent someone involved with the film who reported back that while there was a small crowd, it was great fun and a good atmosphere.

    My film was one of the official selections. It seems like a really cool festival...HOWEVER...there was zero promotion/coverage of the film festival. Not a mention of it on their website or on social media. They seemed more interested in showcasing their stand-up comedy and workshops. From looking, you cannot even tell they showed films!

    It just felt like my work was an afterthought. I was disappointed, because it looks like this would have been a cool event to be a part of.
