• A weekend-long comedy film festival to include a short film competition and feature screenings;

This event follows Indie Art Council’s successful August preview event at Vinyl Music Hall featuring “Kids in the Hall” star Kevin McDonald as well as local improv troupe Improvable Cause and local sketch comedy performers who created new sketches under McDonald’s tutelage during a day-long workshop.

This event is part of Indie Art Council Pensacola’s mission to foster and promote independent arts and cooperation between independent artists. The organization, which is in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status, was formed in 2019 by a group of like minded Pensacola artists and supporters of the arts seeking to share resources, networking and educational opportunities with each other and throughout the community.
