The Chicago Comedy Film Festival got it’s start in 2011 when a few good funny people got together and realized that comedy hasn’t be equally recognized in the film scene.  Aside from the usual drama shorts and films, most other pictures chosen to be included in film festivals consist of experimental works that give you a different perception on things. Emotional rollercoaster titles and pseudo intellectual ideals are great, but where are the laughs at these special events?

This question is one that Chicago Comedy Film Festival director Jessica Hardy asked herself many times, I’m sure, before giving a place for independent comedy film makers and award winning directors from all over the world to show their stuff in one great place of laughs and appreciation.

Last year, the show featured 13 sponsors with the 31 short films and comedy works but this year will be bigger and better. With 15 sponsors, including DePaul University’s School of Cinema and Interactive Media, and 32 films – we at a Chicago Thing have nothing but high hopes for the 2nd Annual Chicago Comedy Film Festival!

We will be there to catch some laughs – will you? (nod your head at this time affirming your attendance)
