Concordia Comedy Festival

It's time to get your entries in for our fourth-annual Concordia Comedy Festival! 


The deadline has been extended until February 8!

Because of the Polar Vortex weather last week and many students missing school, we have extended the submission deadline. Please submit your films by midnight on Friday, February 8. 




Area students in middle and high school are invited to submit their films to be shown on the big screen on March 15, 2019. Submit your videos that will make the audience chuckle, belly laugh or all out roll on the floor in laughter. 


AND, we have a new category this year. Submit another film for our "Houston, we have a problem" category to win a Fandango gift card! All films for this category must include the dialogue "Houston, we have a problem" at least once and use Sunglasses as a significant factor in the story. Since students may enter 4 total videos, this would be counted as one of our total videos (multiple "Houston" videos may be submitted, but no more than four total submissions from each student). 


The Comedy Festival will take place at 7 p.m. March 15, 2019 in the CLHS Auditorium. 


Finalists will be announced February 20, 2019.


All finalists' films will be shown on the big screen when the top winners will be announced. First prize entries in both the high school and middle school categories will receive a GoPro! (Groups will still only be awarded one prize.) We will also offer a prize for the People's Choice Award, which will be voted on that evening. 


We will have multiple judges for this competition. Stay tuned for the announcement!
