THE FALLING FESTIVAL
A CO-PRODUCTION WITH PONY CAM

In May 2020, Melbourne's RISING Festival made a 'Call to Artists'. Your boldest ideas are what they asked for, and in response to thousands of ideas, they choose twenty-six. 

FALLING was our response – an unattendable festival of rejected ideas.

On May 26th, 2021, at 7:15pm Kissing Booth and PONY CAM livestreamed the launch of the first ever FALLING Festival.

Over seventy pitches were received, read, and celebrated.
