In an effort to showcase funny women in the state, IFP Minnesota and Women Stand Up! A Comedy Cabaret teamed up for this competition. The rules of the contest were simple: Films had to be short, funny, and to the point at a maximum length of 10 minutes long. Pieces submitted had to be directed and/or written by a female, and had to star an actress. Submitted works were then sent to a panel of celebrity judges, including Lizz Winstead (co-creator of The Daily Show), Mary Jo Pehl (a writer for Mystery Science Theater 3000), and standup comedian Jackie Kashian. At the finale, guests can check out the top 10 submissions. The winners will be announced after the screening.
