$12, General Admission

“I’ll TAKE WHATEVER YOU’VE GOT!” is the opening line of dialogue for this WICF film challenge. Come see the films selected as finalists!

Filmmakers who enter must create a comedy short between 1 to 5 minutes. The Best of Fest receives $1,000 and a one-on-one mentoring call with HBO’s Director of Comedy Programming, Ada Chiaghana!

About the Contest: The Women in Comedy Festival Film Competition is hell-bent on paving the way for more unconventional female characters and story-lines to be written, directed, and produced by women. We are looking for female-driven short comedy films that go beyond the typical tropes.

ALL GENDERS are welcome to submit but the film’s protagonist must be a woman, and a woman must hold AT LEAST ONE of the following roles: Producer, Director, or Writer.

Submissions are now closed – Submission Info
