HCFF 2009 Official Selections

It all started in 2009, the first ever “Houston Comedy Film Festival” (HCFF). When you present a film festival for the first time, it’s difficult to tell how many people are going to show up. To our surprise, the event was great, it started on a Friday Night with a short film showcase that was a complete sellout at the Studio Movie Grill in Houston, Texas.
