FRANKIE Winners 2019

The 29th edition of the St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival came to a close Sunday evening at the historic Café Campus with the festival’s prestigious Frankie Awards and closing night party. Sixteen awards were handed out to FRINGE artists by festival partners.

The Frankie Awards are named after Frank Hopkins, a key benefactor during the festival’s early years of the festival. Frank Hopkins passed away on November 11, 2015, his 93rd birthday. As Frank always did, the awards in his name shine a light of the stand-out productions of each edition.
