When we cancelled the festival in March 2020, we told creators and publishers that applications for our 2021 festival would open on August 1st, 2020. As conditions and public health advisories surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic continue to evolve, we can’t currently confirm festival dates for 2021. Therefore, we will not be able to open applications as scheduled.
We’re hopeful that we will be able to announce festival dates soon, but we need more time to see how current health policies play out.
There will be a festival of some kind, but we don’t know what that looks like yet. We’ll provide an update in November 2020.
