Connecticut Film Festival Highlights

user
  The Connecticut Film Festival, which took place this past weekend in Danbury and Bethel, Connecticut, offered a creative mix of programming, educational seminars and special events. In all, some 75 films were showcased at the 4 day event. An extensive boot camp of educational seminars was geared to local and visiting filmmakers, new media entrepreneurs and television producers. Highlights included an master class by Focus Features president Andrew Karpen, a screening of...

Always a Bridesmaid? Hell NO! by Kimberly Deisler

user
 If you’re a woman and you hear adjectives like short and funny, immediately you think two things, that Kimmie Dee is hilarious and so is a man with a sock in his pants. You’d be right to laugh at both.  A man show at a job site sans tool, almost nothing funnier or sadder.  But add to that hit list of short and funny, sexy and monetarily endowed and you’ve just described the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival’s closing night festivities.  Downtown LA’s Elevate Lounge hosted and LA...

We Don't Need No Stinkin' Carpet! by Kimberly Deisler

user
With the whole of LA being awash with red carpets, I’m surprised Moses hasn’t shown up. And yes, the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival has a carpet, well … it’s actually a runner, and yes it’s red, and yes celebrities stand on it and get their pictures taken albeit a much more intimate setting than some of those other snobby assed carpeted events. AND YES, I LIKE IT, MUCH, MUCH BETTER! There’s no security asshole the size of a building telling you you can’t talk to the ‘talent,’ ...

HAPPY HOUR(S)

user
It’s a little know fact that, when visiting Hearst Castle back in the day, David Niven was rumored to have said, “this is a lovely place to visit, the alcohol just flows like mud.” This is NOT the case at the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival, quite the contrary in fact. If laughter is the best medicine, Ventura Limoncello Cocktails are the elixir that helps the medicine go down and down its going! Ventura Limoncello is making quite a name for itself and one of the biggest celebriti...

Paneling

user
In all the panel discussions I’ve sat through in my life time, the panels at the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival are the best bar none. In part because of the industry professionals that are assembled but even more so because the audience members are serious about being silly. Comics are an eclectic bunch but if generalizations are to be made, they’re a group of incredibly smart, talented, passionate people who take their art and craft to heart. One of the most nauseating aspects of...

WHY ARE YOU THERE?!

user
We're here at the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival and the house is already buzzing baby! In da house is Artistic Director Gary Anthony Williams, who you may remember from Boston Legal.  The Executive Director Jeannie Roshar who I'm not on speaking terms with as she just had a baby and looks amazing! Who needs that? Believe me when I tell you, we'll not be in any photos together!  Filmmakers have already begun bellying up to the bar and bending elbows for cocktail hour and the energy is amped....

KISS MY SHORTS

user
We’re at war, the economy is in the toilet, many are out of work and/or sick with no health care, and speaking of which, arguments over health care reached an all time low with the way people have conducted themselves, oh and did I mention you still haven‘t won the lottery? With all the crap on the “news” the relentlessly chatty pundits shoving opinions in our faces, it’s a wonder we don’t all just take an elevator and jump out a high rise window. And do you want to know wh...

Berry Great Night at LA Comedy Shorts!

user
Having been to many an industry opening, last night’s soiree falls under the category as “One Of The Best.” The buzz on the festival circulated to a viral pitch making for outstanding attendance. The packed house included all walks of comedic life and regular folk too, not to mention the random guy selling umbrellas on a clear night. Again, this is the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival. For the comedy starved looky-loos needing a fix, the fest did not disappoint. Aisha Tyler, several Gro...
