Mission / description Welcome to the Los Angeles Comedy Film Festival! In May 2020 we will be hosting our inaugural event. We have had our hand at producing comedy for over 15 years and this is not our first rodeo. In 2010 we began the Chicago Comedy Film Festival. After 9 years successfully running in Chicago we are expanding based on feedback that filmmakers want a strong comedy film festival in Los Angeles. As filmmakers and producers ourselves, we have produced short and feature films. We know how sacred it is to produce your own content and then ask a committee of people to review your work. We will be an inclusive, welcoming festival, and we promise to make your experience with us memorable. The Los Angeles Comedy Film Festival is a film festival for the comedy filmmaker. Let’s have fun! full text less text
