LOL Short Film Fest - Unrated
Get ready to laugh... The second annual Laugh Out Loud Short Film Fest opens in theatres May 2013! This unique festival is a compilation of 9 hilarious short comedies guaranteed to provide side-splitting laughs. Submissions came in from around the globe and the festival committee whittled them down to bring you the best-of-the-best.
Unlike the snooty content prominent at most conventional film festivals, these films won’t challenge you to be a deep thinker or ponder the man’s inhumanity to man. Hardly. These filmmakers focus on aspects of everyday life that average people can relate to: social media, dating, bodily functions, human sexuality, marriage, raising kids and drinking. We realize that naming those last two is redundant.
The Laugh Out Loud Short Film Fest is a simple escape from life’s pressures and hectic pace. The irreverent humor may make you a little uncomfortable at times – and may even cause you to cringe – but there is no doubt you will laugh uncontrollably. If you don’t, just admit to yourself that you don’t have a sense of humor.
