Portland’s Funniest Video is a monthly showcase of local and regional comedic films and sketches at Curious Comedy Theater. The showcase has been running for seven months and has already done a best of Vol 1.
The showcase is an hour of original scripted content (as opposed to home videos) that is generally under 7 minutes for each film.
Audience vote sends films into a best of showcase that happens every 5-6 months. Best of Volume 2 is slated for September 18 with a small panel of comedians and film industry judges.
Produced and hosted by Dusty McCord (Video Editor, Attack of the Flicks) and Actor, Director, Luke Zwanziger (Director of Video Production Curious Comedy, Ruby Peak Film Festival) the monthly showcase is meant to give filmmakers and comedians a goal to go make something. Watching video communally in a room on a big screen is much more fulfilling than uploading into the digital void. Curious Comedy recently upgraded their projector and screen to provide a 10’x12′ screen and projector allowing filmmakers to have their work shown properly.

Submissions are due by 8 PM Sunday before the showcase to be considered for that month and are accepted on a rolling basis. Preference given to filmmakers who can attend.
