It’s been a long, fun, road. After six seasons of meeting the most talented comedy filmmakers in the business, it’s time for us, the producers of LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival, to concentrate on some recent opportunities that have come our way.

We won’t say goodbye, because we’re certain we’ll be working with you guys in an even more fruitful capacity in the very near future. Thank you for being a part of some of the greatest, most meaningful, laugh-filled years of our lives.
