At the festival we run additional programs and initiatives that you can apply for once you have bought your delegate pass. The dates and deadlines for these initiatives are listed HERE and as we get closer to the festival, so we close submissions.
You do not need to pay more to apply, and we recommend you apply for everything to get the most from the festival.
