The festival is organised by THAG THEATER and Theater am Olgaeck, Stuttgart.
The 1st AMAFEST was held from 23th to 26th of May 2019 under the motto „Theatre without borders“.
The goal of the festival is finding common ground for the cultural meeting of non- professional theatre ensembles from every corner of the globe to make new experiences, to build networks, to learn from one another.
The 2nd AMAFEST was supposed to be held in May 2020 but was initially cancelled due to the Corona-pandemic. It was then reborn as AMAFEST 20 Online.
