    Unfortunately due to COVID, this festival was moved to an online-only platform for 2020, so the networking opportunities that might normally come with a film festival were not available. But I have to say Derek and the folks and Reel Comedy did a fantastic job at making this festival as unique and worthwhile experience for its filmmakers as possible. They were faced with the unexpected task of having to move the usually in-person festival online at the last minute and they made the adjustment as smooth as they could. The communication was excellent. Definitely worth the submission fee!

    We were thrilled our sitcom pilot, It's Complicated, could be part of the festival!

  • I was thrilled to be selected and attend the new film festival. Derek and Nina did a great job as first time festival directors assembling a comical variety of indie films as well as live entertainment featuring Andy Dick! I look forward to submitting all of my future comedy films!
