There has been much talk lately of flu season and cold spells and blah blah. Everyone knows that laughter is the best medicine.
We are now in the second day of the Audience Awards Show Us Your Funny, a comedy shorts competition that will be open until October 7th. We are looking for comedic shorts that will be sure to knock everyone off of their chairs and bring tears to viewers’ eyes (the good kind, of course.)
With 10 films already in competition, one of the current leading films is That’s Not Mine, which tells a story of simple miscommunication amongst family members when a teenager is accused of possessing a bag of pot, only to find that his father is actually responsible. Also in the current top running is Pointless, constructed as the pilot episode for a reality series about speed dating (and also, not entirely pointless, as the film is currently in 2nd place!–see, we show our own funny here sometimes.)
The film that receives the most points will walk away with $300, and as always, all of the filmmakers who compete gain invaluable exposure including press and social media engagement.
Remember, The Audience Awards provides massive exposure for filmmakers and their work!
