ADFA Regional and Provincial Results
Within each of the ADFA's ten regions, various functions, workshops and activities are organized or developed. Each region has a committee who is autonomous and operates to encourage and develop the potential within their region. Each year the representatives from these regions organize a festival and rom these festivals, one play is chosen by an adjudicator to represent each region at the Provincial One Act Festival. Each of those chosen plays receives traveling expenses or a grant to assist in funding their participation in the Provincial Festival.
The Provincial Festival is meant to be a non-competitive celebration of drama. It provides an occasion for the coming together of all community drama groups in a festival situation. We have followed the practice of having one or two adjudicators at a festival. They publicly comment upon the performances and are available for more detailed private discussion with the individuals involved in performance. The adjudicators also select a play to represent Alberta at any National Festivals which may be held during the upcoming year.
