All festivals (and venues/ cultural spaces, theatres, foundations if running festivals) working in one or more of the following artistic disciplines: Architecture, Ballet Contemporary Dance, Circus, Design/ Applied arts, Digital arts, Film, Folklore and folk arts, Heritage, Interdisciplinary, Literature, Music, Opera, Street Art, Theatre, Photography/ Video, Sculpture, Painting. The festivals exist for at least one edition and have their official address in one of the eligible countries. (See more details in the Call)
Leading festivals are free to collaborate with all art festivals even if they are not yet registered on FestivalFinder.eu. The festivals can register on FestivalFinder.eu before submitting their applications.
Theatres, foundations, venues/ cultural spaces are also eligible to apply if they are organising a festival.
The definition of a festival is:
- Its primary focus is on the development, presentation and/or participation in arts and culture
- Occurs in a defined area/ region and a defined period of time
- Exists for at least one edition. Note: It may be the first edition of the festival if it is an additional partner (if more than 1 partner in the Discovery category or more than 2 in the Springboard residency).
Discovery Residency: The partner festival should be registered in a country other than that of the leading festival. Any additional partner festivals (if more than one) can be from any eligible country.
Springboard Residency: Each of the two partner festivals must be registered in countries other than that of the leading festival. Any extra partner festivals (if more than two) can be from any eligible country.
In this fund, emerging artists are not defined in terms of age, but rather by their novelty to programmers and festival audiences, their potential to ‘break through’ internationally and to impact the artistic field in their discipline(s): a chance such artists did not have before.
By artists, we mean: individual artists or companies of any size and artistic genre.
Being an EFA member is not a requirement to apply for EFFEA.
