Comedy is of course a rather subjective genre but I include what I think are some of the funniest short films. They may appeal to Westerners more!

Time Travel Lover by Bo Mirosseni (2014) (USA) (10m)

Time Travel Lover was a finalist in the 7th FILMSshort competition (you can see other finalists here). Time Travel Lover is a comedy written by, and starring, Elisha Yaffe. He plays one of a pair of lovers who are interrupted by himself, having come back from the future. He is there to tell his previous self not to continue with the relationship. However, this future self is not the only person from the future who wants to have a say on the matter...

Not What You Saw

Not Where You Saw (2011) (USA) (2m)

A simple but brilliant idea, the Ramsey Brothers have made several Home Movie Commentaries. Basically, they get together to watch old home movies and give running commentaries like you find on the DVDs of modern Hollywood feature films.

The Duel At Blood Creek by Leo Burton (2010) (UK) (14m)

The Duel At Blood Creek was selected by Daazo as their favourite European short film from the fourth FILMSshort competition. Blood Creek is the name of a popular site where men settle matters of honour with an old-fashioned duel. Unfortunately, it proves too popular today and several would-be duellers arrive at the same time. The bickering and posturing builds until the fighting begins...

7:35 In The Morning by Nacho Vigalondo (2003) (Spain) (8m)

Nominated for an Oscar in 2005, it's impossible not to like 7:35 In The Morning (7:35 De La Mañana), written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo. It starts off in a slightly eerie fashion, with a woman entering a cafe for her normal morning cup of coffee but with no-one speaking or, indeed, moving. It seems she has a secret admirer who has come up with an unusal way of approaching his intended...
