It’s application time – apply to the 2011 San Francisco Improv Festival!!

The San Francisco Improv Festival is now accepting applications for SFIF 2011!

Acts have until May 8th to submit their application with a link to a 10-minute video sample of their work.

We’re encouraging improvisors from all over the country to apply via the festival website, submitting their videos online. Last year was fantastic with performances & appearances by The Committee, Uncle’s Brother featuring Tim Meadows, Kim “Howard” Johnson, Armando Diaz, Jonathan Pitts, and an overall excellent round of national and international acts who brought top-shelf shows to celebrate improv San Francisco-style.

Here’s the scoop for 2011:

  • Applications are processed completely online.
  • Applications are considered almost wholly on the strength of video submissions.
  • Invitees to the festival are guaranteed at least one performance slot.
  • Performance slots are 40 minutes.
  • Invited performers get free access to all open seats at performances.
  • Invitees get advance access to sign up for workshops.
  • The application fee is $35 and non-refundable.
