Short Com

Tue 28th Oct 14: Introduction to Short Com

Short Com is very happy to announce that it is open for short comedy film submissions for the coming year. Short Com is a touring short comedy film programme that supports independent comedy filmmaking talent by carefully curating the funniest and most charming films to be put on the big screen. Last year Short Com held screenings at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival, sold out on its first appearance in London at the Pleasance Theatre and finished with the annual best of programme at the Glasgow Short Film Festival.

Short Com will be adding further programmes in 2015 including new separate programmes for animation and international to compliment the regular best of programme.

There will also be an awards ceremony at the end of year programme with awards and prizes in the following categories:
Best Performance, Best Directed, Best Script, Best Animation, Best International,
Jury Select (Copy of Blackmagicdesign Davinci Resolve 11*), Filmmakers Select (A Blackmagicdesign Decklink Extreme 4k Capture Card*) and The Audience Award - £300 cash prize.

* Award applicable for UK Entries only.
