Official Selection 2019: Comedy

Comedy offers something for everyone. The 2019 reels have been programmed with distinct and relatable themes, from life lessons and unexpected adventures to dealing with heartbreak. Satirical, tongue in cheek and playful, these shorts play on social etiquette.

The Plunge is about Jay and Emily’s new relationship. After an energetic night of passion, Emily tells Jay she’d like to use a strap-on with him. Scared of losing a potential real connection, Jay reluctantly agrees to this new experience. Director Simon Ryninks’ previous work has won awards all over the world as well as online.

The Plunge is screening as part of Comedy 3: Too Much, Too Young. It will be shown on Wednesday 6 November in the Yorkshire Museum (21:45-23:00); Thursday 7 November in the NCEM (17:00-18:15); Friday 8 November at Everyman Cinema (14:45-16:00); Saturday 9 November in NCEM (11:30-12:45) and Sunday in the Yorkshire Museum (19:30-20:45).
