The annual AFDA Experimental Festival promises to be an eye-popping and mind-boggling experience across our four AFDA campuses. The students explore experimental concepts and present their outcomes from their own course which ultimately embodies the scope of the future of the creative economy. Our Business Innovation and Technology students, will give presentations of and launch their cutting edge, on the money business concepts. AFDA film and television 3rd year students will be screening over 60 experimental films and tv documentaries. Live Performance students will stage over 30 theatre plays and live music performances. 

The confirmed dates for the Experimental Festival  are 21 & 22 August 2020

This date has been carefully considered to (1) allow for as much time as possible for the Experimental post processes and festival prep to be concluded, whilst allowing students as much time possible to reflect on the outcome of the Experimental productions before they fully engage with their graduation productions. 

Please note that this date has to include all productions namely, film, television, animation, stage and music performance.

With regards to the above we acknowledge that stage and music performance productions could happen in the week prior to the end date of 22 August, as has historically been the case.
