Recently I was contacted by Chris Aitken, Creative Director of Short Com, an excellent UK-based festival focussed on comedy shorts. He’s graciously offered a fee waiver for any filmmaker who reads our blog, Twitter, or Facebook posts. Here’s what he has to say:
Short Com is a highly regarded short comedy film festival that has taken place in some of the UK’s leading cities over the past several years; Manchester, London, Edinburgh and Glasgow. We at Short Com believe comedy is one of the least appreciated art forms yet one of the most difficult and it is part of our mission to promote emerging talent. The first thing we look in a film is its capacity to make an audience laugh, ahead of whether it’s been filmed in 4k. Our festival relaunch takes place in Edinburgh during the world’s largest arts festivals. We are delighted to team up with Shorts That Are Not Pants who like us, have their heart in the right place when it comes to short film festivals and being a friend to the filmmaking community. To find out more about Short Com and how to submit, please visit our festival page.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Chris Aitken. Short Com Creative Director
