Dear friends around the world: I hope you’re all doing well, and that you’re staying safe and healthy. While we are safely sheltered in place in Finland, it is with a heavy heart that I must write this message. We have made the difficult decision to cancel FiiF2020 due to the Global Pandemic.

We care deeply for the safety of our community of improvisers around the world. Improv can be a great way to bring people together. However, we do not want to cause any additional financial or mental burden to anyone by holding our festival, and by canceling early, we hope to give everyone some peace of mind. 

Anyone who has already purchased a Festival Pass or workshop has received an email with information on how to receive your refund. While we know that everyone is understanding of the situation, it still saddens us to not be able to hold our Festival this year. We appreciate your understanding and patience during all of this, and we hope you’re somehow able to make the best of it wherever you are. We want to extend a special thanks and message of love to all of the Producers, Instructors, and Teams whose hard work we will not, unfortunately, be able to showcase this year.

Thank you all so much for being a part of this international improv community. I’m so sorry we won’t be seeing you this June. Hopefully this all ends soon, and we can come together again once more to celebrate international improvisation in Tampere, and everywhere else around the world.

Until then: Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay home.

– Trent & The FiiF2020 Crew
