In London, fringe theatre is the equivalent of New York's off-Broadway theatre.

Although the CAFF claims it was "to protect the artists and the integrity of the festivals," this approach, as well as festival registration fees drew criticism from some artists and led to the creation of the infringement Festival in Montreal in 2004, a new movement that now has festivals running in five cities.
