The Houston Comedy Film Festival
2015 Houston Comedy Film Festival Homepage
312 films from 32 countries were submitted and the HCFF judges narrowed it down to 30 short films and 3 full length feature films screened February 16-19, 2015 at the Alamo Drafthouse - Vintage Park in Houston, Texas. A little over 300 people attended the five sessions and there were plenty of laughs to go around. The world premiere of "Jonny's Sweet Revenge" and "Quad X: Rise of Beaver Slayer" got plenty of laughs and support from the Houston Community. Session 5 ended the festival with a great crowd that enjoyed the slate of short films. Many people came up to me afterwards and said that it was one of the best short film show cases that they had ever seen at a film festival, which is a huge compliment.
