Premiering at Tropfest 2019 Comican't is the first film production by Rollercoaster Pictures.
An epic adventure film with a cast comprised of actors with a range of intellectual disabilities, our film was selected as one of 16 finalists from a pool of hundreds of films.
At the awards ceremony in February 2019, Comican’t was awarded a coveted second prize for Best Film, and our male leads Ryan New and Andrew Tressider, tied for joint Best Male Lead Actor.
With a live audience of nearly 20,000 on the night, the film has now been viewed by over a million people.
