Festival Handbook

The AACTFest 2019 Handbook will be available early March 2018.  While there will be changes from the 2017 edition, we continue to make that version available for informational purposes.

AACTFest 2017 Handbook

The AACTFest 2017 Handbook is designed for the festival host and performing companies entering the festival, with changes and updates that supersede previous Handbooks. Click here for a summary of changes to the Handbook, as published in the March-April 2016 issue of Spotlight.
