Laffer fest calls for entries

Montreal's Just for Laughs bows July 13

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.
