A few days ago submissions started pouring in at FilmFreeWay as our summer of drinking beer and reminiscing of festivals past has now moved into full operations mode. We’re especially wound up this year because we’re on a mission to win the war on comedy.
Our festival began four years ago because we felt that comedy on film needed a proper home. A place to be celebrated and applauded beyond the dry, dead film festivals with all their red carpets and polite applause. A place to laugh and spew beer all over yourself doing it.
Comedy needed to be liberated. Free like Willy.
A place where its naked art could swing about and be appreciated by an audience that came to laugh. Drink beer too. Maybe some music before and after.
Four years later we’re still fighting the good fight and taking back a place for comedy in the cinematic film landscape. We are Canada’s grandest and longest running comedy film festival and we are growing every season.
So cheers to comedy on film and cheers to Shärt!
