7th Broad Humor Film Festival

Synopsis:

September 27th - 30th


7th Broad Humor Film Festival

The 7th Annual Broad Humor Film Festival takes place Sept. 27-30 at the Electric Lodge in Venice, CA. Broad Humor is the only film festival dedicated to woman-created humor.

"When we started the festival, there wasn't a lot of recognition for women who wrote and directed comedic films," says founder and festival director Susan diRende. "We wanted to turn the spotlight on them. Now the entertainment industry is starting to catch up and see that women are indeed capable of making audiences laugh."

The four-day Broad Humor Film Festival has something for everyone.

LIVE COMEDY CABARET- This year's festival Thursday, Sept. 27, with a night of fabulous female performers live on stage. Standup, sketch, music, dance: some strange and some surprising, but all funny.

DIY/WEB PRODUCTION DAY - Friday, Sept. 29. For aspiring and experienced filmmakers who want to develop their career on the web. Learn how to make it work and make it pay.

FILM SCREENINGS - Screenings begin Friday night, run all day Saturday and include films andshorts programs, with films from around the world.

SCREENPLAY READINGS AND WORKSHOPS - Finalists screenplay readings and workshops aimed at the craft of writing round out the festival on Sunday.

Prizes for this year's festival include goods and services from Greenhouse Studios, the Write Brothers Screenwriting Software, Gorilla Software, the Footage Firm and Video Blocks.
