TAKE PART IN FiiF2020!

Join us for the 8th Finland International Improv Festival 9.-13.6.2020 in Tampere Finland.

FiiF is a unique improv festival taking place during the nightless nights of the Finnish summer! Each year, anywhere between 70-100 improvisers from all the corners of the globe come to Tampere to enjoy a week full of improv workshops and shows. The festival days are filled with workshops by our renown Instructors, as well as bunch of other organized activities and events. The evenings are reserved for shows by our one-night-only festival ensembles and international teams selected through our application process. After-parties are organized every evening, providing a place for off-stage shows and hanging out with all of your new improv friends!

We try to make the FiiF experience as easy as possible, taking care of everything so you are ready to play as soon as you arrive in Tampere. All non-Tampere-based participants stay together in the same hostel, helping to create the unique atmosphere that makes FiiF such a wonderful festival to be a part of. All players are invited to a FiiF exclusive Slack Group where you can talk with the other participants before, during and after FiiF! All levels of improvisers from all backgrounds are welcome to take part of the festival. The participation fees help us cover the costs of the Festival.

For this year, we have three types of passes available: Team Pass for teams that are chosen through an application process, Player Pass that is available to anyone and a Local Player Pass that is reserved for Tampere residents only, so our local friends get a chance to join in the fun as well!

Below you can find detailed information about the different passes!

WHAT IS INCLUDED?

ACCOMMODATION

5 Nights Accommodation at Dreamhostel!
All non-Tampere-based participants stay together in the same hostel, helping to create the unique atmosphere that makes FiiF such a wonderful festival to be a part of.

Our partner hostel – Dreamhostel, is located in the centre of the city, on a quiet side street. This charming old industrial building used to be, among other things, a pharmaceutical production facility and a papermill storage. As one of the few remaining privately owned properties in Tampere, Dreamhostel has quickly attracted international fame. Breakfast is served daily to the participants staying in the hostel.

Dreamhostel has been ranked in Top 10 European Luxury Hostels by the British newspaper The Guardian.

SEE THE SHOWS

We have 4 nights jam packed with improvisation from around the world.

More details about the International Teams, Festival Ensembles, and our world-famous Instructor Showcase is released closer to the festival! If you are looking to perform your own format on the FiiF stage, Team Applications for the festival will open on January 2020.

The Main Stage shows are held at a historical venue, Yo-Talo, build originally as a bank in 1901. Later it has been transformed to a venue for music and arts, Yo-Talo has over 50 years of experience hosting theater shows & concerts.

Each night after the Mainstage Shows finish up at Yo-Talo, we head to our official afterparty bar for the FiiF Off Stage – a small stage dedicated to Players, Projects, and Formats we couldn’t fit on the Mainstage.
