An online film festival to celebrate the short format comedy.
Any and all comedy sub-genres welcome - romance, slapstick, animation, black comedy, absurdism, horror, dance, stand-up, musical - just make us smile or, even better, laugh! Any language is also welcome (as long as non-English films have English subtitles).
As a social distancing friendly film festival, the screening will be online through a private link to ticket holders. The film festival will be screened for a limited time so your film will not be publicly available.
Selected films will receive official selection laurels and the film voted the audience favourite will receive a certificate (which will be posted to you after the event).
LGBQTI+ themes welcome.
The film voted the audience favourite will receive a certificate (which will be posted to you after the event) and $US40 paid via PayPal. (You must have an active PayPal account to receive the prize money within 14 days of the film festival's end date).
