It is widely known that laughter is the best form of medicine.

In such a busy and hectic world we often find ourselves involved so deeply in serious matters that we forget to laugh.

We’re looking for filmmakers who not only love to laugh but who also love to make an audience laugh. We hope that the audience and filmmakers will enjoy and laugh their way through this festival.

What better way to spread joy to the world than with films that make us laugh.

We are looking for all kinds of humour, the kind that makes you giggle, the kind that makes you think and the kind that have you literally rolling on the floor laughing!

There will be humour for kids, for the millennial generation, for grandmas and grandpas and for everyone in between.

We want humour from all corners of the world, from all cultures, races and genders!
Bring us your shorts, features, documentaries, web series, sketches, TV series and scripts. The ROFL Film Festival accepts all types and genre of film.

We’re looking for satire, slapstick, word play, musical comedy, mockumentaries, deadpan comedies and more!

We take comedy very seriously here at the ROFL Film Festival and our team ensure they are safely seated on the floor before viewing your submissions so we are well prepared for when your work has us rolling on the floor in fits of giggles!

Lets share joy, laughs, smiles, good vibes and happiness.

    A small festival with a nice organization and very cool films screened. The hospitality was amazing and they really care about filmmakers. I'm sure it will grow up very soon, I wish them the best.
