The Friars Club continues its tradition of commitment to comedy and nurturing new voices in entertainment with the introduction of the Comedy Film Festival. FCCFF seeks to give comedy films a world-class film festival to call home.
The festival includes screenings of feature films, documentaries, and shorts from around the world, as well as panel discussions with leading industry professionals. Jurors comprised of filmmakers and professionals in the various fields of cinema will award the Festival's Best Feature, Best Documentary, and Best Short distinctions.
The Festival is not limited to any particular style of comedy. Whether it's crass, slapstick, sarcastic, a romantic comedy, a dark comedy, a spoof-- you name it-- if it's funny, it's eligible.
