We like it short. And we like it funny. So we’re bringing the best of those two worlds together for a night of comedy shorts. Well, it’s more like 2 hours, but that’s like a night, right?

This specially curated programme, from Shorts Not Pants Film Festival Founder and Programmer James McNally, includes some of the best comedy shorts that have previously screened at Shorts Not Pants and other festivals from around the world.
And we will have filmmakers of these funnies, joining us for a post screening Q+A.

Gather your friends, family and frenemies for the funniest short films packed into a 2-hour event, you don’t want to miss.
