Who doesn't LOVE comedy? Who doesn't LOVE movies? Who doesn't LOVE the vibrancy of Chicago?!
That is why Chicago Comedy Film Festival is excited to be back in 2012!
We started last year, featuring films from across the globe! This year we are back to bring you THE BEST in independent comedy filmmaking. You will be SO glad you supported us this year, because we have some GREAT stuff to show you at this year's fest, taking place November 2nd-4th at DePaul University School of Cinema and Interactive Media.
This year we are bringing a fest primarily aimed to make sure comedy filmmaking is showcased at its finest. Comedy is a vital and influential art form. And we can prove it.
We are able to support ourselves PARTIALLY from filmmakers submission fees and from ticket sales. But did you know we keep both of those rather low? We think filmmakers and YOU should be able to enjoy something so wonderful, without breaking the bank.
So if you have a little extra to give your funding on our Kickstarter project will support us in covering our most basic production costs this year (drum roll please!):
1. All printing costs (programs, signage, posters)
2. Food and beverage for audience, filmmakers, and staff
3. Public Security and technical staff costs for the event
$2,000 is our minimum goal. Anything beyond this will help us with:
4. Marketing and promotions
5. Visiting artist stipends
Our fest is ran by VOLUNTEERS! People who love comedy as much as you come down for the three day event and laugh and play with us while we host out of town filmmakers and show their talents off. We appreciate time and money and we promise to not disappoint!
But your funding benefits you as well! Check out the awards we have to offer! (And if anyone asks, we didn't give you the idea, but for $500 get 4 friends together and share the room!) wink wink. Check out our Red Carpet Sponsor Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel.
A great big special thanks to our sponsor ANH Media for the Kickstarter promo video! Also credits to our actors Kenneth Yoder and Meegan Kelleher!
