Welcome to the Vantage Point, presented by Company of Angels
There were additionally four applicants that struck the heart of our committee, and have received honorable mentions: Innocence, Inequity, and Injustice: Ft. 21 Chump St., Late Nite Daze and Margaret Garner solo show.
As an open-access festival, we seek to foster a ground-breaking community of artists and make performances more accessible, both to the artists who produce them and for those who otherwise cannot afford to see theatre. Our committee firmly believes that these productions will enrich audience experience and the quality of the Hollywood Fringe Festival’s artistic offerings through the presentation of unique and underrepresented themes.
Each scholarship recipient will receive free registration and a $550 stipend towards production costs, a Fringe mentor, and marketing and networking opportunities as a member of the Fringe community. Fringe Scholarships are available to first-time Hollywood Fringe producers who contribute to the ethnic, cultural, racial, intellectually or physically disabled, D/deaf, and the LGBTQ+ diversity of the Fringe community.
