The Festival Congress is AIF’s annual flagship event and the largest gathering of independent festivals in the UK, with over 400 industry delegates expected to attend in 2019. Following four consecutive sold-out events from the event’s inception in 2014, the Congress has rapidly evolved to become a fixture and must attend event in the festival industry calendar.

In 2019, Festival Congress is once again taking place in Sheffield on the 6th & 7th of November. The conference element will be held across both the Abbeydale Picture House Cinema & Picture House Social, and the evening celebration & Independent Festival Awards held at 92 Burton Road, followed by an aftershow party.
