About Fringe of Colour

Listed Under Film Events / Online Events

Fringe of Colour are delighted to be hosting our first ever online arts festival, Fringe of Colour Films - an independent streaming service that will host over 40 films made by Black and Brown people/People of Colour throughout August 2020.

Films will be released as weekly collections, each available for 7 days.


Fringe of Colour was started in 2018 by Jessica Brough as a publicly-available database of shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival by performers of colour. This was a response to the scarcity of shows by people of colour at the fringe, across categories, and the disproportionate promotion and support they receive in contrast to productions by either entirely or majority-white performers.

​Since then, Fringe of Colour has contributed to the conversation around the lack of representation of Black and Brown voices at arts festivals, and the majority white and middle-class environment that manifests in both the audiences and on stages.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fringe of Colour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
