On Sunday afternoon, NXNE hosted the second annual edition of the Laugh Sabbath Film Festival featuring comedic shorts from Canada and the U.S., screened at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre. Presented by the Toronto-based comedy collective and judged by industry professionals, the festival is a great opportunity for unique comedy voices to have their work screened on a large format in front of a big audience rather than over the Internet where reaction is gauged solely by views.

The winner of the big $500 prize was Beep Beep (produced, written and directed by Isaac Winter & Adam Kemp) featuring an extremely catchy song about Jeeps amidst a horrifying tale about a kidnapping and a Jeep. The audience choice award went to Finding Bessarion (produced, written and directed by Jeremy Woodcock & Cameron Wyllie), a charming short about Toronto’s least bustling subway station. Grab your favourite snack that crunches or chews and check out both shorts below!
