Some reviews from a taster media screening we held at the 18th OTF launch –

18th OTF review here.

The movies selected ranged from all over the world including one filmed in Armadale, Perth! Doesn’t get much more local to this gal who grew up in Mt. Nasura. This years festival theme being “It’s a Big Bad World Out There”, an underlying sense that flows through all of the films screened. This was seen through Thor-chickens, Nazis, robbers & their wedding and even politicians.       Jenn R

Thank you so much … Over The Fence Comedy Film Festival for organising such a funny, entertaining and thought provoking “teaser”. My favorite films were Once Upon A Time In Nazi Germany, Flowers and Fixed!   

I loved the diversity of the films that ranged from a cartoon about a mythical chicken to a couple fighting because they are so perfect together!

I can’t wait to watch the full roster of films and I will definitely recommend it to all my friends and family!                   Vanessa G

It was a good collection of short films suiting all different types of humour. I particularly liked the restaurant short film where the husband and wife are complaining about each others habits as if the woman has the mans role in life and visa versa. Very clever.
The funniest film of the night for me was To Jail do we part. 
…  I let out some loud chuckles. My girlfriend Tania certainly enjoyed the mix of different styles of comedy and showed her appreciation with loud laughs. 
Great way to show off the comedy and ideas from very very talented local and overseas writers and filmmakers.. Steve O.
