Sketch Screen 2015 Film Competition

Returning for its second year, Sketch Screen is on the lookout for the best sketch comedy videos from around Blighty, to shine a light on the talented new filmmakers in British comedy.

A competition designed to highlight exceptional talent from the sketch comedy scene in filmmaking and run in partnership with COFILMIC the comedy film talent network, we gather a selection of the best video sketches from around the UK and screen them in front of a panel of industry judges live at the annual London Sketch Comedy Festival.



Last year’s competition saw This Glorious Monster’s ‘Coming Out Clown’ selected as the winning film. They gained automatic inclusion into the Cofilmic comedy film festival and went on to win the sketch category being entered into a shortlist for a £10,000 development fund with Wild Seed Studios.



While we scout for amazing sketch videos from around the comedy scene we also provide a submission period for filmmakers to send us their video sketches.

Filmmakers can apply by filling out an online application form at and selecting Screen category, providing contact details and links to material.

Sketches can be up to 5 minutes in length and must have been made within the last 3 years. Deadline for submission is  SUNDAY 12th APRIL.



The winner will be selected by a panel of industry judges and will be given the chance to shoot a new video with Comedy Director Dipak Patel and produced by The Laughing Guild.

More details on panel judges to be announced.
