The theme of the August 2018 DRAMA/COMEDY FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “The Self”.

Each film was about an individual being themselves and the consequences and/or rewards that come with that.

Los Angeles just went VIRAL. We filled up a 250 seat cinema and had the entire crowd talking about the various films we showed this month. Lively crowd. Lots of conversation about the 1st half DRAMA shorts and the “sexy” 2nd half COMEDY shorts.

3 festivals left in 2018. Make sure you attend. Have some amazing films coming up.

See you at the festivals.

There is an episode about this festival in our archives as we talk about the audience and all the great films we showcased at this event.

The theme of the August 2018 COMEDY FEEDBACK Film Festival in Toronto was “Comedy Duos”.

Each film was about two characters driving both the comedy and the plot.

The last festival event of the summer is always the hardest to get a sold out crowd because either people are away, or they want to stay outside in the gorgeous weather. Nevertheless, we had a great crowd to watch our “Dark Comedy” festival in Toronto.

This was our 6th comedy festival of 2018, and 2nd in Toronto. These are always fun events because they are intended to make us laugh. The twist of this festival was there was a dark tone to each film. Well suited for our generally “artistic” Toronto audience. They all seemed to have a great time too.

The team of Kierton Drier & Mary Cox are superb. They keep turning out great event after great event.

See you at the festivals.

THE BIRTHDAY PARTY, 21min., USA, Comedy
Directed by GH Ridpath & Noah Ferche

Every year, two best friends (GH and Noah) make an epic movie trailer to invite people to their birthday party (SAD!). This year, things have hit a snag as they can’t seem to agree on a new idea. With the help of their “elderly” friend Joe, the boys sit down at a local bar and hash out their plan. While each man presents his idea, we are taken on an epic journey of visualization as each idea comes to life through reenactment spanning multiple genres, themes, and locations.
