Congratulations to Hunter Snider (BFA Film & Television '22), whose hilarious film TRUE TALL TALES WITH BUN H. BUTLER won Best Comedy Film at the Portland Comedy Film Festival. Hunter attended the festival and accepted the award in character as Bun H. Butler - a character he introduced on reddit two years ago that quickly attracted a devoted following and became the inspiration for his senior thesis film.

True Tall Tales, which premiered at #IDreamInWidescreen2022, follows an eccentric public access TV host's attempt to prove the existence of a flat-faced fox. As well as attracting new fans in Portland, the film has generated laughs at the Houston Comedy Film Festival in Texas.

"I'm really excited to start the next chapter of my life in comedy, whether it's with standup or continuing to tell Bun's story online," says Hunter. "I'm really lucky to have so many avid supporters online that have been loving the character as much as I do."

Keep up to date with the adventures of Bun H. Butler over at reddit.com/user/BunHein/.
