It's Awards Shortlist day at Funny Women HQ! Thanks to all the amazingly talented film makers and script writers who entered this year. Not only have you made us laugh, but you've helped raise thousands of pounds for domestic violence charity, Refuge. Well done!
Our panel of judges will be deciding the overall winner of both categories this afternoon, so not too long to wait! The creators of the top three scripts and films will be invited to join us at the Funny Women Awards Final next Monday 22nd September at the Leicester Square Theatre in Central London, and the overall winners in both categories will be announced on the night.
Our judges include award winning director of 'Bend It Like Beckham', Gurinder Chadha, Vice President of Development and Production at Comedy Central, Lourdes Diaz, Editor of the Huffington Post Comedy UK, Andrea Mann, and Creative Director of The Comedy Unit, Gavin Smith.
