Fringe! was formed in 2011 as a community response to relentless arts cuts, and since then has grown and grown. Over these years we have been a fully volunteer-run and not-for-profit organisation, powered by the passions of a team of creative queer activists. We have been dedicated to ensuring half of our programme is free or under a fiver, and creating safe spaces so everyone in our community who wants and needs to access a stimulating, welcoming social place. 

Apart from our ticket sales, we rely on donations and fundraising to cover the basic festival running costs from printing programmes and keeping the website up to bringing filmmakers to London and finding brilliant pop-up spaces.

If you would like to donate to Fringe! or become a key sponsor, partner, private donor, or offer in-kind support please drop us a message: hi@fringefilmfest.com
