“Red Octopus presents A Night of Comedy Shorts” is Arkansas’ only ongoing comedy short film series. Twice a year prepare yourself for a night of laughter as you watch some of the funniest films from around the world. These comedy short films come in doses of humor in all styles & budgets. If a film is funny, then we will screen it!
A Night of Comedy Shorts is an open, accessible festival dedicated to fostering a community of filmmakers, fans, comedians, and your average Joe who are looking for a night of laughter & relaxation, maybe over a cold drink from The Lobby Bar.
Each screening features a guest judge from the world of film, comedy, television, or the Arkansas arts scene. After the screening, the Judges pick for Best Film and the Audience Choice for Best Film will be named!
