Aloha from Hell is a 100% submission-based short comedy film fest with a love of all things creepy, kooky, mysterious and spooky. The theme of this year’s fest is SHE DEVILS – incorporating the theme into your submission is encouraged, but by no means required. Have fun with it!

We review all submissions with great care, and in order to be considered for inclusion in the film fest, your video must be:

• 100% your original creation 

• 5 minutes or less in length

• Comedic or satirical in nature

• Free of hate speech, racism, and misogyny 

• Completed and submitted by our October 4th deadline

You may submit multiple videos for consideration, but EACH submission must include a $5 fee – 100% of Aloha's proceeds go to Planned Parenthood LA, so feel free unleash that back catalogue!  
Once your film is submitted, you consent to have it publicly shown at our event unless written contact is made requesting its withdrawal. If your clip has been selected for inclusion in Aloha From Hell, you will be notified by October 7th. 


One film will be named Fan Favorite by audience vote at the Aloha From Hell Film Fest on October 15th, and that winning video will be shared by our buddies at Comedy Central on one of their platforms! Amazing, right? However, in order for your video to be eligible to claim this sweet sweet honor and have your art shared with Comedy Central’s massive audience, your film must also be:

• Free of any 3rd party intellectual property (i.e. no Spiderman costumes or Monster Mash).

• Not X-rated ; ) 

The Fan Favorite winner will be announced after the Film Festival, once all votes have been tallied. The winner will be contacted prior to announcement with further details, and if for whatever reason they opt out, the video with the next highest number of audience votes will be selected.
