In partnership with Film Forum and Creative England, Lighthouse presents FUNNY GIRLS, a screening of five new shorts from some of the UK’s most promising female comedy talent.

About

Showcasing new comedy shorts produced through Creative England’s FUNNY GIRLS production initiative, delivered in partnership with the BFI NET.WORK, Big Talk Pictures and Baby Cow Productions, this is an opportunity to watch work by a group of talented emerging female filmmakers, and to gain insight into the process of developing and producing comedy.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring members of the different filmmaking teams, and Celine Haddad, Senior Executive – Development and Production, at Creative England.
