MIME FEST is an international festival of mime theater involving the cooperation of foreign festivals, schools and major institutions in the field of mime art. It presents their work in a broader European context and creates new opportunities for artists to meet. The selection of performers focuses on professional artists and a broad range of forms of mime theater. Considerable attention is devoted to the younger generation and educational activities – workshops and seminars led by professionals intended for both students of the performing arts and the public. Because of this, MIME FEST has become a unique platform providing an expansive view of the current state of contemporary pantomime throughout the world.
The festival holds the prestigious European remarkable festivals award EFFE since 2015.
