Fast, Funny, and Short

We believe that films in film festivals should (almost always) be faster, funnier and shorter. Therefore, this collection of short films uses scientific principles and is ergonomically constructed (and extensively field-tested using IndieFest’s patented Laughometer®) to move very quickly and to make you snigger, giggle, chortle, guffaw and snort. In addition, if you attend this program and discover that you do not enjoy the short film that you are currently watching, we solemnly swear that a new (and completely different) short film will begin to play very soon. Warning, extensive knee-slapping will leave strange marks.
