Comedy Shorts Program

Comedy Shorts Program

April 1, 12:00 AM – April 30, 11:59 PM


This is a virtual event. All shorts programs will be available between April 1-30, 2021 and all feature films will be available for ten days between April 8-18, 2021.

Who doesn't need a laugh right now? We’re happy to bring you a program that will have you second guessing if you're on a date or not, figuring out if breaking into your crush’s apartment to delete an email you accidentally sent is a good idea, or being more interested in your ex getting engaged instead of the zombie apocalypse happening outside. Curated by Katie Shannon.
