The Hollywood Fringe Festival is thrilled to announce our 4th Annual Artist Fund, raised by the community, for the community. We know that funding for artists is abysmal and creatives have taken a massive hit financially over the course of the pandemic and we want to help, which is why 25% of funding through the HFF Commissioners Club goes directly into the Artist Fund so more artists have access to the festival performance platform! This year we are thrilled to award 24 Artist Funds!! Thank you to our amazing Commissioner Club members for making this possible!
