FemFest 2020 Line-Up

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

We are excited to announce the line-up for our 18th annual festival! FemFest 2020: Engaging Community is coming up in September 2020 and gives us all something to look forward to. Over a year ago we started planning an amazing array of artists for the festival. We are pivoting some aspects to be offered virtually in order to respect the health and safety of audiences as well as artists, however we are excited to share the incredible work by nationally-renowned women and non-binary artists we have been collaborating with. The annual festival of life-changing plays by women for everyone runs September 19-26. This year’s festival features eight days of thought-provoking plays, readings, skill-building workshops, and our annual Opening Night Cabaret.

Check out our FemFest website for all of this year’s programming. Keep checking back for updates on how and where components will be delivered. You can also check out the brochure to get a full sense of the festival we imagined months ago and are committed to seeing through in unique and exciting ways!

We are accepting submissions from playwrights for our annual FemFest Bake-Off. Five Manitoba women/non-binary playwrights will be selected to participate. A meeting will occur in August at which the writers will be given their ingredients to bake a new script. Readings of the resulting work will take place on September 21st at FemFest 2020: Engaging Community. The audience will then select the piece they would like to see further developed. The winner receives a $500 prize and a slot for a full reading at FemFest 2021.
