The Festival Directors have been involved in live and filmed comedy promotion, performance and production for over fifteen years.
Exciting, creative content is more important to us than slick production values. With comedy, if you make them laugh, audiences won't care if you filmed your masterpiece on your uncle the swinger's 1980s video camera.
London and the UK has a long, illustrious history of comedy from The Canterbury Tales to Monty Python. It is also a global centre for production companies and talent agencies that are looking for new talent to provide comedy content for the ever expanding market of online entertainment, digital content marketing and advertising. We have a database of these companies and agencies and update them about the talented filmmakers participating in our festival.
Most importantly though, the films we screen aim to entertain our festival audiences so we have some important criteria for the films we show:
GET TO THE FUNNY BITS QUICKLY.
BE ORIGINAL AND AVOID CLICHES.
"Brevity is the soul of wit" William Shakespeare
(and he knows better than us because he wore tights)
Being able to share great, undiscovered comedy films is a real buzz and delight for us and our festival is an essential calendar feature both for audiences wishing to have some great nights of laughter and for the discovery of new comedy creators.
All participants in our festival (if they wish) will have their contact details along with their film details made available to our industry database.
