How To Submit Your Proposal:
Visit www.borderlightcle.org/fringe-apply-2022/ to access all the application documents and links.
Due to the limited number of venues and schedule slots, the BorderLight Fringe program is determined through a selection process. The application does not guarantee acceptance in the festival. All proposals are reviewed by a diverse panel of industry professionals and theatre practitioners, in collaboration with BorderLight Festival staff. Productions that are not chosen during the initial selection may be placed on a waitlist in the event of a cancellation.
