The festival is the UK’s only Comedy Film Festival and this year marks its third year, which promises to be an even greater success than last.

Varied selection
Opening with Lost in Karasran, a satirical film from Ben Hopkins and Pawel Pawlikowski starring Matthew Macfadyen as a down at heel British director who is invited to create a national epic by the President of Karastan, the 2015 Loco London Film Festival demonstrates how varied and innovative comedy can be. It will also be hosting the world premiere of the independent British comedy, Superbob, which stars Brett Goldstein amongst a host of other British actors in a very warm, and typically British comedy.

International films
It’s not just English films that are screening at the Loco London Film Festival, as a host of international comedy will be shown as well, such as the acclaimed Dutch film, Farewell to the Moon and the Australian romantic comedy, The Infinite Man. There will also be a screening of music videos that give you the giggles as Pulse Films have curated a selection from over the years. The selection will also be accompanied by a live chat with directors and experts from the field including the liikes of Dougla Wilson, who has worked with Jarvis Cocker and Goldfrapp.

Loco Discovery Award
The Loco Discovery Award is a way of bringing new talent into the public eye. It is a prize given to a British comedy feature film that has no current distribution. Previous year's winners have ended up nominated for BAFTAs and other such awards, however this year the winner is yet to be announced, so click back soon for more information.
