About the Event
Some artists and thinkers fly too close to the sun. Their curiosity and need to create takes them to places that are prohibited and inherently dangerous. They make art and cultivate ideas that bring light and beauty to the world, they reassess ancient beliefs, and they enrich the human experience, but oftentimes this mission generates too much heat for their own health.
The Icarus Fringe and Film Festival is both a refuge for artists and thinkers whose explorations and minds get them in trouble and a celebration of the work they do. Journalists, filmmakers, and comedians from all over the world come to Icarus Fest to share their creations and views that in the public arena have gotten them burned. They come together to share our common dissatisfaction with the status quo in politics, popular culture, and the world of ideas and to offer visions of something more interesting, more pleasurable, more contentious, and perhaps more just. This is a festival of dissent. But more importantly it is a festival of creation.
