  • LEADERS OF THE FUTURE: Register as a producing individual or organization to host your own outpost of The Future Is Female Festival. Leaders of the Future are the primary, featured core the festival, who solicit their own scripts and make their production or reading open to the public. Leaders of the Future are featured in festival PR.
    DEADLINE TO REGISTER: January 20th Sorry, now closed.
    (If you were in touch prior to January 20th, email us about late registration.)
  • BUILDERS OF THE FUTURE: This is an easier, simpler way to create your own “pop-up” festival outpost. Sign up as a Builder to organize an informal reading of plays envisioning women’s futures. Builders of the Future don’t solicit their own scripts, they source plays from submissions we’re collecting. Builders are also not required to make their outposts open to the public (e.g., it can be as simple as a gathering of friends in your living room), and as such will not be featured in festival PR.
    DEADLINE TO SIGN UP: Varies, see link for details.


  • SUBMIT A PLAY: The Future Is Female Festival is seeking original 10-minute plays written by women on the subject “the future is female,” for use by Builders of the Future in informal “pop-up” readings. Submit by February 20th at 6pm EST. See link for full details.
  • VOLUNTEER FOR THE FESTIVAL: TFIF Fest is run on 100% volunteer labor, both virtually and locally in NYC. We’d love for your to share your time and talent! Send a note through the contact form and specify your areas of interest or expertise.
  • CONTRIBUTE AS INDIVIDUAL ARTIST: The TFIF Artist Resource Directory lets individual artists potentially connect with festival outposts in their area looking for talent. *Sorry, the directory is no longer taking additional names.
