The Jocunda Music, Film & Theatre Festival is a festival that celebrates the artist and will be held at ARTEL Hotel in Brooklyn, New York. ARTEL is a unique hotel. Our motto: The Destination for Creative Minds. The festival is brought to you by the producers of the acclaimed Strawberry One-Act Festival, which has been in existence since 1995. They just completed a run at The Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Peter Norton Symphony Space on Broadway at 95th Street in NYC. The Jocunda Festival was created to provide a platform for artists to obtain exposure and to network and make connections to collaborate on future projects.

Plays can also be submitted for the acclaimed Strawberry One-Act Festival for plays with running times between 15 - 30 minutes. Also for the Strawberry Theatre Festival for plays with a running time of 40 - 90 minutes. The Strawberry Festival will run during August through October 2020. For further info email or visit
