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!

OLEANNA

The Collegiate Players are making their debut at the Staircase Theatre and hoping to incite audiences with their production of Oleanna.
What begins as an innocent appointment between a professor and student gradually spirals into the damaging depths of miscommunication as they grapple over gender politics, political correctness and power.
Directed by Michael Smith and introducing Lyndsey Wasilik and Mark Christopherson.

The Collegiate Player’s debut with David Mamet’s “Oleanna”

Hamilton (December30,2014)

The Collegiate Players make their first appearance with their production
of Oleanna January15-­-17

David Mamet’s controversial two-­-actor play is famous for provoking audiences as they watch an
appointment between a professor and student spiral into the damaging depths of miscommunication in a grapple over gender politics, political correctness and power. Michael Smith who directs Hamilton’s Mark Christopherson(John) and
Lyndsey Wasilik(Carol), has been a instructor with the Acting Program
at Mohawk College for six years.“I wanted to be, in some way, more involved in Hamilton’s growing
acting community.  I’v met great number of students who want to add to their acting resumes.  I wanted another challenge, so I brought the two ideas together.”  Smith has always enjoyed David Mamet’s work, particularly Oleanna. “  This piece has power to incite audiences.  My hope is it will leave them with a sense of, “what just happened here?” Performances are January15,16,17 at 8pm with a 2pm performance on
January17

Tickets are $15, $11students/seniors and available at the Staircase Café Theatre boxoffice day of performance if not sold out online,
