The organizers of the Hollywood Comedy Shorts Film Festival (HCSFF) are thrilled to announce their full festival lineup. Over 200 of the world’s top short comedies have been selected to screen at this year’s 3-day event. The highly anticipated CollegeHumor Originals’ series Downbeat will open the 4th year with two exclusive episodes. Laugh Factory will once again be presenting the Opening Panel, “The State of the Business: The Explosion of Short Form Comedy.”

Short form content has never been more celebrated and has rapidly become the “back door” way to get a feature or tv series fully produced. With companies like HBO, Netflix, Amazon, and of course HCSFF’s partner Bitpix streaming short films, the need has also never been greater. HCSFF is leading the charge by offering a festival exclusive for comedy. Each selected film will premiere on Bitpix after the festival for a limited time, while the winners of each Awards Category will be highlighted on the platform.

The Opening Panel, presented by HCSFF and Laugh Factory, will focus on the explosion of short form comedy. Moderated by Digital LA’s Kevin Winston, the esteemed panel includes Michael Schaubach, Director of CollegeHumor, Luke Kelly-Clyne, Executive Producer/Head of Development at Big Breakfast, Graham Wallace, Creator/Writer/EP of the new series Downbeat, and Jason Sorenson, Twitch Showrunner, with more to be announced.
