The Nickel Independent Film Festival and the Braxton Comedy Festival present the Nickel Comedy Challenge! Between August 2nd and the 11th get together with some friends to make a side-splitting, gut-busting or pants-peeing short comedy film!

It’s free to participate, open to all ages and registration is open until the challenge ends on August 11th. All you have to do is fill out the form below, and then before the challenge begins we send you a small prompt to incorporate in your film and all films must be no longer than 5 minutes. Beyond that it’s up to you! Any style of comedy is welcome, from sketch to slapstick to satire.


All the finished films will be playing as part of the Braxton Comedy Festival on August 14th at the LSPU Hall.

If you have any question shoot us an e-mail at!
