About this page
Reviews are collated from publications which cover the festivals in both quantity and quality. We prefer sources with professional reviewers and a track record of publishing in an open and accessible format (e.g. no paywalls or registration barriers). The ratings are run through a Bayesian algorithm which calculates weighted average scores, taking into account how many reviews each show receives.
