Keeping this short and sweet!

FALL 2020 FNFVF! Call for Entries is now open. However, due these extenuating circumstances, we will be LIMITING the number of entries accepted. This is in case venues do not re-open by November 1st and we need to move the festival online.

What about the Spring 2020 festival? Stay tuned for an announcement on Monday!
