Twain House Hosting Festival Of Comic Short Films
The Mark Twain House & Museum is jumping on the Connecticut Film Festival bandwagon, hosting a three-day festival of comic short films Feb. 24 through 26.
Tom Carruthers, director of the festival, is delighted that the Twain House is adding its name to the list of Connecticut Film Festival offerings.
“Twain is the father of American humor,” Carruthers says. “It couldn’t be a better fit.”
At the festival, Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning “Simpsons” writer Mike Reiss, who grew up in Bristol, will receive a “Commie” award in recognition of his contributions to comedy. That ceremony will be at 9 p.m. on Friday.
