Indie Comedy Film Festival

What the world needs now is more laugh – and what better way to provide then than through an online film festival of short comedy films.

Whilst Studio 138 will not be holding any live events at this time, we still want to bring entertainment from independent artists to Dubbo and around the world. That’s where the idea for an online comedy film festival came from.

Entries are currently open to filmmakers from around the world on FilmFreeway and close May 23, 2020.

The online film festival will be available online privately to ticket holders. The film festival will be screened online June 6 to 7, 2020 (Sydney, Australia time). Tickets will be $AUD5 (plus processing fee).

Audience members will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film of the festival (one vote per ticket). The audience favourite award winner will receive $US40 and an certificate.
