Festival line-up to be announced Sept 1st.

poster 1The Hamilton Comedy Film Festival is an annual juried showcase for international comedy films that have been produced for any delivery mode – broadcast, theatrical release or the web. If it delivers the Ha Ha it’s in!

Funny comedy film-making is tough and often gets relegated to a single segment of most film festivals…at HCFF we think Comedy films need to start man-spreading…and lady-spreading too.

poster 2 HCFF will combine film screenings with live comedy performances from invited Stand up, Solo, Sketch and Improv groups over our 3 day festival to create the funniest Comedy Film Festival happening in Hamilton on Oct 1-3, 2015 on Dundurn St north. We’ll brag more after our first year!
