2016 Lineup Announced!!


Our selection committee has earned a well-deserved break after completing the difficult task of selecting this year’s participating films. We’re proud to announce a terrific lineup for the 2016 Laugh Out Loud Short Film Fest that includes 14 films. It’s a decidedly international program this year with entries from 5 countries. Eight films come from the USA, with the other 6 short comedies hail from the U.K., Canada, France, and Australia. See the complete lineup and more about each film here.

And The 2015 Winners Are:

By an overwhelming margin, the winner of BEST SHORT FILM for 2015 is, The Gunfighter, Directed by Eric Kissack, of Los Angeles, California. Our festival’s second award forAUDIENCE CHOICE is, Foureyes, from the Byrne brothers and founders of Brudder Films. Congratulations to both of our winners, and to all of the 14 filmmakers, cast and crew that helped make the 2015 Laugh Out Loud Short Film Festival a success.

What We’re All About:

Want your short film screened in commercial movie theatres throughout North America? You’ve come to the right place. An estimated 17,000 short films are produced annually, yet only a tiny fraction ever sees an audience that isn’t positioned in front of a computer screen. Sure, traditional short film festivals offer exhibition to an art-house crowd looking for alternatives. But what about the masses? Isn’t that what being a filmmaker is all about? What better environment for screening your film than in front of mainstream audiences at commercial movie theatres throughout North America?

THIS is what the LAUGH OUT LOUD SHORT FILM FEST is all about.

“Our festival is truly unique,” states Joe Edick, Festival Director. “Most people will never attend a traditional film festival for a variety of reasons – including the time commitment and format. Our fest is packaged to accommodate the average moviegoer’s lifestyle. Plus, it’s a familiar location and routine. Patrons will buy their concessions and watch our comedy shorts up on the big screen, right where they watched the recent 200 million dollar studio blockbuster.”
