Canuck comedy festival Just for Laughs is calling for submissions to its 18th annual showcase, set to unspool July 13-23 in Montreal.
In past years, the competish — which prides itself on showcasing offbeat and cutting edge comedy — was limited to comedy shorts, but this year’s installment will add full-length comedy features to the mix, with a new category dubbed Comedia. Program will run as a collaborative effort between Just for Laughs and Montreal’s three-week action-adventure feature festival Fantasia.
Fest’s lineup will be comprised of four 90-minute programs: Eat My Shorts, Eat My Twisted Shorts, sub-titled French language counterpart Tout Court and Comedia. All programs will feature a variety of flavors, including animation, live-action and silent comedy.
For information, or to submit films, call (514) 845-3155, ext. 2371. Deadline for submissions is May 1.
