Houston Comedy Film Festival 2016 Official Selections

I want to give a special thank you message to everyone that submitted films to the Houston Comedy Film Festival. We never imagined when we started this film festival in 2008 that it would grow to this size. There were over 500+ submissions combined with Screenplays and Films. So many of these decisions are difficult and our Notification Date has been delayed by two days. We make sure that every film is watched from the beginning to the end by 12 judges before making final decisions. 12 judges read every letter of every screenplay from the Title to the End, before making a final decision. We take this process seriously and understand the investment that each filmmaker has made in time, energy, creativity and money. We are filmmakers ourselves, and we treat all of you, the way we would want a film festival to treat us. All submissions will be announced on Monday April 11th, 2016 (instead of April 9th) for all categories. We have some of the categories decided. Please refresh this page in order to get the latest update.
