Objective

The Houston Comedy Film Festival opened for submissions in 2008 and we had our first event in 2009. We are looking for a diverse palette of comedy screenplays with the following categories. 1-40 pages is considered a short and 41-150 pages is considered a feature in our world.

1) Comedy Short & Comedy Features
2) Dark Comedy Short & Dark Comedy Feature
3) Comedy TV Episode, Sitcom, or Webisode: Short & Feature (commonly called a Teleplay)
4) Romantic Comedy Short and Romantic Comedy Feature

80% of the submissions go to the Comedy Short & Feature Categories, which are the most competitive. If your screenplay falls into one of the other categories, we strongly advise that you submit to those. We have some judges that specifically request Romantic Comedy and we have others that do not like Dark Comedy and will not read for that category. Show More
