What Is The Houston Comedy Film Festival?

The Houston Comedy Film Festival is a theatrical screening event for independent comedy films that also recognizes excellent comedy screenplays. First of all, the Houston Comedy Film Festival was founded in 2009 by Mikel and Brooke Fair. Since then, this comedy specific film festival has held ten (10) events. Furthermore, we have screened over three hundred (300) international independent comedy films from 30 different countries. Hence, we are always looking for funny films that make people laugh out loud. Finally, good acting, original ideas, funny situations, clever concepts and excellent writing are the keys to being accepted. We have created a Comedy Film Festival Judging Guide, if you'd like to find out more about how we select films for our event. #HoustonComedyFilmFestival #FilmFestivalCircuit Would like to be a part of one of the longest running comedy film festivals in the United States?
