Toronto: Award winners of the 2021 Digital Toronto Fringe Festival

Sunday, August 1, 2021

Last night was closing night of the 2021 Digital Toronto Fringe Festival. Over the past 11 days, we have welcomed international artists and audiences, we have danced in virtual reality on our patio, we have been amazed by the elevated digital storytelling of the 2021 festival artists, and we have felt the Fringe Movement alive and well. Although the digital nature of the festival was strange at times, we were moved by the ability of the Fringe spirit to thrive online.

The festival itself is closing, but the On-Demand shows on our website will continue to be available until Sunday, August 15 at 11:59 ET. Memberships will also continue to be on sale.  We hope this gives you more time to watch and support the shows in this festival.

Congratulations to the Award Winners!
