Over The Fence is a Comedy Short Film Festival created to celebrate the independent filmmaker, and bring laughter and joy to all viewers!
Now heading into its 21st year, the Over The Fence Comedy Film Festival was created as a grass roots festival dedicated to championing the new and Indie film makers, who are the starting point of a flourishing film making industry. We aim to create a vibrant, stimulating, inspiring environment for film makers and audiences and to bring laughter, thought and joy to people.
Our mission is to offer a refreshing challenge to people’s ideas of ‘what comedy is’, to give our audience a whole new experience of the way in which funny stories can be told through a wide variety of film making styles, genres and from countries across the world!
OTF’s success can be attributed to the passion and dedication of the volunteers and stakeholders. As a not-for-profit organisation OTF does not receive any funding from public organisations, which means that the majority of the costs are covered by the endeavours of our Fest-director, Greg Coffey. With your donation, Over the Fence Comedy Film Festival is able to put the effort it deserves in marketing, to make sure that more people get to see OTF’s films that make you think, just as much as they tickle your funny bone.
By touring the festival across a variety of venues in both rural and densely populated areas, OTF celebrates new and independent film makers, their comic masterpieces and their excellent sense of humour.
