If you are accepted you’ll get FIRST PRIORITY when attending our sold out industry panels.
This festival prides itself on helping industry executives discover talent they are not familiar with. If you were a performer in last year’s festival (2018), we advise you to not apply this year. Wait till next year to apply again. We like to cycle in as many new faces as possible. This way we can get a good mix of new faces, and talent that we’ve had before, but we want to see again with new material.
NOTE: If you have submitted before, PLEASE submit a new tape.
