Hey there comedy filmmakers!
Submissions are OPEN for SHÄRT 2017! The BIG V! Number 5!
Our big Fifth year party. We’ve not only made it this far but we’ve grown and established ourselves as the de facto comedy film festival in Canada! We’re probably still the only one too! (Google is such an effort these days.)
Shärt V is gonna be a party. A big fiver birthday party celebration. Our audience is pushing the limits of our venue so we’re hoping standing room only this year. Cake, beer, film… Uncomfortable standing!
A few changes this year…
– The Shärt Rom Com Award, which was given out in our inaugural year, is coming back! So keep that in mind.
– We’re also adding The Shärt Best International Award because we love the global flavour of comedy that comes in every year and really want to specifically recognize beyond the Canadian films that are submitted.
– Sadly, we won’t be holding the feature category in 2017. We watch your film. All of it. Last year we had burnout from the films submitted and sadly there were just not enough quality features to hold our audiences attention in our opinion. We’re taking a break this season.
So open the gates for Shärt 2017! Our biggest yet! Submit and above all MAKE US LAUGH!
