DEC 2022

We have so many events to look forward to in 2023 as you begin your HFF23 journey! Below is a list of pre-festival educational events, as well as more information on upcoming networking opportunities. All of these events are designed to prepare you for a wonderful 2023 season. Can’t make an event or want to catch one you missed? Check out the stream of all Fringe events that have passed here.

 

Pre-Festival Educational Opportunities:

Workshops consist of panel discussions with past Hollywood Fringe participants, and Town Halls are led by Hollywood Fringe staff. Both are great ways to get to know the Hollywood Fringe from different angles and perspectives! 

 

We will have ASL interpreters at all in-person events, and auto-captioning at all virtual events. If you would like to request an interpreter at any virtual workshop, please contact [email protected] at least 72 hours before the event, and we will provide one. All events are “pay what you can,” and donations are much appreciated, but only if you can afford to do so.
