The Charlie Chaplin Comedy Film Festival is a four day event is packed with workshops, circus performances, street entertainers, art exhibitions, amusement rides, film competition screenings and pop up improvised comedy. Back in the 1960s, Charlie Chaplin and his wife Oona came to Waterville by default, rather than design, and immediately fell in love with the place. Chaplin was spellbound by its extraordinary beauty and from then on continued to holiday there along with his entire family for many years. In fact, Waterville is still a bolt hole for some of his children and grandchildren. The 6th annual comedy film festival is a showcase for Chaplin’s enormous corpus of work in the film industry and Chaplin classics will be screened throughout the festival. The pivotal event is the competition for film makers (the closing date for entries is 1 June 2016). Tickets sold on www.chaplinfilmfestival.com. Click the button below to be taken to the page.
