The Lowdown:

Working on a new puppet piece? Got a puppet experiment to try in front of a friendly global audience? Try it out at one of our Digi-Puppet Slams!

VIP Festival’s slams are traditionally a safe, fun, inclusive place for puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts to gather and play. This time, we’ll be collecting your digitally recorded work, then screening it live for a global audience via YouTube 

July 31 for the adults The Fast & The Furriest Puppet Slam

In the spirit of classic slams, these events will be un-curated and puppet acts will participate based on order of video submission.

Artists who submit but don’t make the cut off will be included in the next Digi-Slam installment.

Your act can be about anything. Please be aware, VIPF is FIRMLY and INSISTENTLY anti-racist and pro LGBTQ+.

Please note we will be collecting donations as the Digi-Slam is screened. All proceeds will be equally split and paid to the artists to help them create work in these troubled times. We can’t wait to hear from you!!

**Following the Live Stream, your piece will live in this collection on our YouTube page VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL PUPPET FEST in perpetuity, unless otherwise stated. Please let us know if you’d like your piece to be a one-time only screening, and we’ll edit it out before uploading the file.
