LAUGH OUT LOUD PRESENTS: JUST FOR LAUGHS EAT MY SHORTS!
Submission Deadline: May 15, 2017
Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud Network and Just For Laughs have joined forces in search of the funniest short films with Laugh Out Loud Presents: Just For Laughs Eat My Shorts, a new initiative between the world’s biggest comedy star and the world’s biggest comedy festival.
We are currently accepting competing short film submissions for Laugh Out Loud Presents: Just For Laughs Eat My Shorts! From submissions received, 20 films will be selected by a team of Just For Laughs and Laugh Out Loud (LOL) programming experts to stream on the LOL website and app when it launches this summer. LOL fans will then have the chance to vote for their favorites. The top five films selected will be screened at the Just For Laughs Festival on Thursday, July 27, 2017, where Kevin Hart will personally announce the winner. The winning individual or team will receive a development deal to direct a new short film that will air exclusively on LOL.
Films submitted must speak to a diverse, multicultural, millennial audience and be no less than 3 nor more than 22 minutes in length (including credits). All types of comedic genres will be accepted — from mockumentaries to romantic comedies. All languages will be accepted but subtitles must be in English.
