Great distinction for Buffer Fringe Festival

The Buffer Fringe Festival, a one of a kind performing arts festival organized by the Home for Cooperation, in and around the Nicosia buffer zone, is one of the 26 EFFE Laureates of the European Festivals Association (EFA).

This year the Buffer Fringe Festival will take place in November 2017 in the old city of Nicosia showcasing work from artists from all over the world and all over Cyprus.

A Home For Cooperation press release said that the EFFE Laureates are highlighted from amongst the 715 EFFE Labelled Festivals by the EFFE International Jury for their exceptional quality, work, commitment and impact within their contexts and territories.

This means that Buffer Fringe together with the other 25 festivals are in the run for the EFFE Award handed out on 18 September during the Arts Festivals Salon in Brussels.

Pawel Potoroczyn, chair of the final EFFE Jury meeting, said he is delighted with the result which is representative for the whole EFFE Label list covering 39 countries. The geographical reach, diverse festivals’ scope and diversity in arts disciplines, as well as a strong social engagement, are reflected in these 26 EFFE Laureates celebrating the diverse festivals’ community all over Europe.

The Buffer Fringe stands for artistic freedom and provides a space for experimental expression, creative excellence and learning opportunities for new artists.
