This scheme recognises great online theatre being performed at Brighton Fringe 2021. A number of online reviewers and bloggers have agreed to participate as OffFest assessors.
An online theatre show can invite these reviewers and bloggers to watch their show – though their attendance depends on their availability and other factors – we cannot guarantee that all shows will be seen by reviewers who are also OffFest assessors.
To receive an OffFest, a show needs to receive a nomination from at least two OffFest assessors. Once two such nominations are received, an OffFest will be awarded to the show – this will be confirmed via email to the company / producer, and it will also be announced via Twitter - @offwestendcom.
In addition, all awardees will be listed on https://offies.london/offfest-fringe-festival-award/. Shows awarded an OffFest will also be recognised at the annual Offies awards ceremony.
Please note that an OffFest is awarded for the overall theatre show – there are no separate OffFests for performance, design, direction, etc. Please note the OffFest does not cover stand-up comedy.
If you are a company / producer / who wishes to be considered for an OffFest, apart from inviting reviewers, please email email@example.com with your contact details and an image of the show, as well as details of any co-producers, and your Twitter handles – and do follow us on Twitter - @offwestendcom.
The following reviewers and bloggers have agreed to participate – you are free to invite them to watch your show but, as stated above, there is no guarantee they will be able to accept all invitations:
