22 Award-Winning Films That Will Make You Laugh

It may not surprise you to find out that the majority of award-winning indie and foreign films can only be seen at film festivals. Official Best of Fest was created to share these world-class, film festival films with everyone. We have gathered a top-tier curating team—award-winning film makers and film-festival directors, Oscar winners and nominees—to sift through thousands of independent film festival films to find the best of the best.

The results are here on DVD as part of the Official Best of Fest collection.

  • Disc 1: 10 Award-Winning Short Films
  • Disc 2: 12 Award-Winning Short Films

    I was searching the internet to find out more about the short film Live at Five directed by Averie Storck and saw that it was once a short available in this collection. However, I read through the list of films and did not see it in the list. Is it no longer a part of the collection?

  2. Greg  

    Yes, the Laugh collection was revised earlier this year; but I think we still have some copies of the original collection. Would you like a copy if we do?

  3. beccaht421  

    Yes I would! Thank you. I have been trying to find Live at Five for a while now, and it would be great if you still have a copy with it included.

    I am so glad I found this site and these collections.

    Hi, Josh Frank here. I just opened the first and only mini urban drive in theater in Austin. Chronicle is running a spread on it in the Oct. 1 issue.

    See our drive in here:

    I would like to talk to you about collaborating on a series I REALLY want to have at the space.

    I am thinking of calling it,

    series- We don’t need no Stinkin Distribution Deal- (Indi Flicks with no theatrical release (YET) get a home at our Drive-in) : TBD

    I thought it would be great to work with a awesome company like Best of Fest who is doing some really great INdi work to curate films from both local film makers and national that would like a screening, talk, and even gallery show space for other works that came out of the production at our arts facility/drive in movie theater. We could also sell dvd of their undistributed films in desired as well as your collections!

    If you are interested in discussing, please get in touch. best, Josh Frank

    Serena should be contacting you directly via email about ordering. Give us a shout if something goes awry!

    Can you tell me how to get “Paranoia”? I think that’s the name of the animated short about the grazing cow listening to a radio report about mad cow disease.

    Thank you!

    Hi, Charlie. That’s Agricultural Report! It’s a part of our Award-Winning Films to Make You LAUGH gift collection.

    Haven’t liked any of the movies on the Laugh collection. My wife and honestly quit watching them because they are just a big disappointment. Did not allow us a laugh.

  10. Greg  

    Well, that’s very surprising, bplumb. I think that’s the first time we’ve had that complaint! But true to our word, I’ll be emailing you privately with a password for a free online screening of Expiration Date.

    Gift sets are sold out. Will there be more available?
    And if so, when?

  12. mary lou lovell  

    Also-What is the price of the various sets?

  13. Greg  

    Hi, Mary Lou. Sets had been priced in the $30-$50 range, depending on the number of discs. Right now, we don’t have plans to bring these back into print as the licensing agreements are expiring. We may, however, be offering certain collections at clearance prices in the near future. Sign up for the newsletter, and you can stay abreast of news that way. Also, Deseret Book has a limited number of their remaining stock available: Click here for a list
