The 2017 Over The Fence Comedy Film Festival
In 2017, our 19th edition, we proudly presents 14 short comedy films from around the World which take on quirky conundrums with an excellent sense of humour.
Our cheeky shorts show anything can change; it’s just how you look at it, so “choose! “ This year issues of contention arise – ‘To lie or not to lie on the first date’; ‘ a pollie’s gotta get a ‘real’ job’; ‘take or give back for your crimes’; ‘find a real man or an imaginary friend’… and so much more.
And, that folks, is the theme for 2017 –
Tickets now on sale – for these venues!

How it all works
‘We’ will provide you with electronic artwork to be used in your own promotional material, media releases, press photos, MC script (optional), website presence, and two DVD copies of the festival.
Some filmmakers may be available for radio/press interview on request, as will the festival organisers. (The program runs for 105 mins, and we recommend you include a 10-15 min intermission break).
‘You’ will be required to provide the venue, DVD screening equipment (generally a DVD player, video projector, screen and sound system) and personnel (eg, projectionist, front of house staff, bar staff, MC).
You will also be responsible for any local publicity & promotions deemed necessary for the success of the screening in your centre and the associated costs, plus a fee to be selected from the following options:
$440 flat fee, $220 plus 20% GBO, or 50/50% GBO split.
Feel free to contact either of us with any queries. Alternatively, you can fill in the booking form scan and email it back to our office to secure your participation.
Further information regarding the films in this year’s program is available upon request.
