Details

Good comedy makes us laugh. Great comedy has the potential to make us rethink the human condition—at least for a bit. The KCFF comedy shorts program is a selection of film and media work that showcase Canadian humor: clever, wacky, dark. Whether it’s by blurring the line between fiction and reality, contorting genre rules or dealing with unconventional subjects, each film offers a critical take on some aspect of our society, without failing to entertain.
