In 2019, the festival will include a BYOV (“Bring Your Own Venue”) component in boroughs other than Manhattan, providing an open access opportunity for additional emerging artists to present their work under the auspices of The New York International Fringe Festival. These venues can be run as adjudicated, curated, or first come first served / lottery or in whatever way the venues wish!
Any FringeNYC alumni show (a show that was presented at a prior FringeNYC festival) or any show that is being produced by a current FringeNYC Alumni Association member and will be presented at an outer borough venue during the month of October is welcome to register to participate in the festival as a
STAND ALONE FringeNYC ALUMNI SHOW
JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING – the fully produced show, the venue you’ve rented, etc. This is a ticketing and marketing opportunity only, and that’s why it is only available to FringeNYC alumni (who we know have the producing experience to leverage this opportunity). This is a perfect way to remount a show from a prior season, produce a larger show that requires significant physical production, or a site-specific, experiential, installation, and/or devised piece.
GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE – naming The Present Theatre Company, Inc. as an additional insured.
ALL BOX OFFICE INCOME – ticket income will be paid out to your ONE company or producer.
TICKETING – We will sell all tickets for all shows in the festival (be they part of the adjudicated festival in Manhattan (FringeNYC) or a part of a BYOV (FringeBYOV)). Tickets are sold online or via mobile, and you merely need to log in to create your performances, set ticket prices, then scan tickets at the door using an app that is available for iPhone or Android devices.
MARKETING – DURING THE FESTIVAL TO ALL AUDIENCES
Perhaps stating the obvious, but we’ll be printing the program guide including listings and images for all shows, and display advertising will be available for purchase, as well. Much more detail about marketing inclusion can be found here.

STAND ALONE FringeNYC ALUMNI SHOW FAQs
Why can only FringeNYC Alumni Association members register as stand alone FringeBYOV?

What is an ACR?
Why is the marketing fee for an Alumni BYOV higher than for an Indie Venue (per show)?
The marketing fee is based on the space in the program guide for each show AND the other requirements per show. At an Indie Venue, we will provide ONE ticketing system login, and will write ONE check for all box office income to the venue (who is providing their ONE tax form). Each Alumni BYOV show is independent, and therefore needs its own login, venue location information in the program guide, etc. – hence the higher fee.
Can we use our own box office / ticketing company for our FringeBYOV?
Can we set our own ticket prices as a FringeBYOV?
Yes, you will determine your own performance schedules, ticket prices, etc. You could do a single performance of a higher-priced event, or a longer multi-performance run and use more standard ticket prices. That said, you will be required to accept our multi-show passes (which encourage our audience to be more adventurous during the fringe).
