How rewarding to create a platform for showcasing films that express the art of clowning and physical comedy. The transliteration from stage to screen is a field of infinite possibilities and tremendous gratitude goes to the bold and creative artists who stepped forward to entertain its viewers.

Now, if we can return the favour through our chats and comments sections the circle of mimicry can be completed, and remember to tag us #playthefoolfest! 

The curtains for 2021 go up on April Fools Day with the opportunity to laugh and snicker on our own time.

Happy online festivaling!
