Dark Comedy Film
The darker side of comedy, sometimes referred to as “Black Comedy,” has an audience at Portland Comedy Short Film Festival. Is your film’s sense of humor dark, mysterious, or strange. Is your film a horror genre parody that makes comedic jokes about Zombies, Vampires, disease outbreaks, Halloween, magic, the undead, the apocalypse, or something else unusual? Dark Comedy films sometimes deal with off-the-wall things that may make you laugh and/or cringe at the same time. Dark comedies aren't always suitable for mainstream film festivals, but if produced properly, can make a lasting impression. Would you like to screen your film for an Portland audience that loves the Dark Comedy genre? If so, then this is the category for your film. If you have created a trailer for your film, please include a link in your submission details. The time limit for the Dark Comedy Short Film category is between six minutes (6:00) and twenty minutes (20:00) including all credits.
