About SICFF

Founded in 2013 by the late Winnipeg businessman and comedy film enthusiast Ulysses W. Shärt, the Shärt International Comedy Film Festival is entering its FOURTH year celebrating comedy in film. The festival has received submissions from virtually every continent on earth, except for Antarctica and North Korea. South Polar film making we assume has focused on dramatic films while North Korean comedy filmmakers have most probably been imprisoned. North Korea is a continent, right?

Anyways, SICFF truly celebrates the international language of laughter. We also think that comedy can change the world. Or at least make us laugh for a bit and forget how awful things are.

The festival motto is “Make Us Laugh” and its objective is to create a fun, non-traditional film-screening environment. An evening of beer, music and film. No pretentiousness here so please don’t feel pressured to wear pants.

MORE FACTS:

SICFF is NOT a publicly funded film organization. We take money from neither the Province of Manitoba, The City of Winnipeg nor the Government of Canada. Our festival is driven by wonderful sponsors, ticket sales and submission fees.

We have received over five hundred submissions from around the world over our four years of operating.

Our festival does not screen R Rated comedy films.

Our inaugural festival was at the Sturgeon Heights Community Centre in Winnipeg. The past three have been at The Park Theatre on Osborne.

We believe in a non-pretentious atmosphere where films can be appreciated with beer and belly laughs.

It’s shärt (sh-air-t) not shart!
