In addition to the Artistic Awards above, MITF bestows the following prizes:

The Congeniality Award-Awarded to a festival production that excels in demonstrating congeniality before, during, and after the festival process, including efficiency, flexibility, tact, and professionalism. This monetary award is voted on by the Festival crew that interacts with the shows on a daily basis, and presented by MITF Managing Producer Emileena Pedigo.

Producers Awards- This monetary award is awarded to the producers who sell the most tickets and engage in the most inventive marketing, presented by MITF Executive Producer John Chatterton.

The MITF’s 2011 Season ran from July 11 – 31, 2011 at the June Havoc Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor; the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor; the Main Stage Theater, 312 W. 36th Street, 4th floor; and the Jewel Box Theater, 312 W. 36th Street, 4th floor.  23 plays and 11 musicals were featured.

 

The Midtown International Theatre Festival, now in its eleventh year, celebrates the diversity of theatre.  The MITF welcomes theatrical storytelling across a broad spectrum of genres, forms, identities, cultures, and appetites.  The MITF seeks to nurture these new ideas, perspectives, and stories on its stages, with an eye set on guiding these productions toward future success and longevity.  The festival, traditionally held in summer, represents a fantastic, often paradoxical, adventurous and intriguing cross-section of the forefront of the theatre world.  The MITF proudly hosts production companies from across the country and around the globe, uniting talent in one of the biggest theatre capitals in the world.

 

Mr. Chatterton created the MITF, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, in 2000 as a way to present the finest off-off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety.  In 2008, the Festival added two 99-seat theatres and inaugurated the Commercial Division for upwardly mobile shows with commercial ambitions.  The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself and therefore the Festival requests minimal production values.
