Open Call Amsterdam Fringe Festival 2022

Hi and welcome to the application form (below) of Amsterdam Fringe Festival 2022! We’re delighted you are here to apply for our festival. Here are some hot tips for filling out the form:

Create an offline draft

You cannot save the form in between. That sucks. We are aware and truly sorry. So our hot tip is: either make sure to never close your browser window or copy/paste the questions below and make a draft version offline. We warmly recommend the latter – than you always have a copy on hand for your archives!

Be concrete (the adjective, not the noun)

Try to describe as clear as possible what you plan to do, how you want to make it happen and why. Give examples. Did you not create your performance yet? No problem! Just take us through how you imagine it to become right now and explain how you want to get there. We understand plans may change, just wow us with that mindblowing (yet realistic) pitch.

Please send links, not files

At the end of the form you can include attachments like CVs, tech riders, video and photos. Please do not send us large video files, but rather include a link to your vimeo/ youtube / website in the form. Thank you!
