About Comedy Short Shorts

JFL NorthWest in association with Sirius XM, Vancouver International Film Festival and CreativeBC is proud to present the third annual Comedy Short Shorts film competition.

On Saturday, February 18th, 2017 in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Comedy Short Shorts will once again shine a well-deserved spotlight on the talented filmmakers and comedians of the Pacific Northwest. Canadian, American, weird, wonderful and everything in between, we select the best short format comedy films and sketches to delight our live audience before our panel of five industry judges crown the winner.

First place will receive a prize of $1,000 and will have their short film screened at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, Canada’s largest comedy festival!
