Digital performances consists of the artists sending a pre-recorded, high-quality theatre performance that will be streamed as a part of the festival.

Can I submit more than one application?

No. Artists may only submit one application. Artists can re-apply the following festival year.

Will you censor my show?

MMFF is an uncensored platform for artists to present their work. Having said that, the festival does not condone any illegal activity. The MMFF accepts no responsibility for any actions of the artist/company and its associations. Any company and its associates in violation of any applicable law, by-law, or any other rules or regulations, including policies of MMFF, will be subject to removal immediately from the festival without any compensation.

I don’t know what my show is yet. Can I still apply?

Yes. The description and details can be submitted later once you have been accepted into the festival.

Why would I want to put on a Fringe show?

Fringe is a great platform to produce a show while the fringe takes care of its presentation.

You can also experiment with content since Fringe is traditionally non-curated and is open to any performance genre of your choice. You can choose to tell your story; however you please.

An artist and their team get to perform on a platform that is recognized worldwide, and expand their network with other artists coming from regions outside your recognized area.
