NOTES: This is a casting call for all actors who are interested in being contacted on the weekend of the Filmly Festival to be involved in any of the short films being made as a part of the competition.
See below more information about Filmly:
This film festival challenges young filmmakers to create a short film in 72 hours using 3 specified stimuli. The stimulus isn’t revealed until the start of the 72 hours, giving filmmakers little time for casting. Filmly Festival participants may contact actors in advance, or spontaneously over the filming weekend. The qualifying films will be screened at ACMI with the chance to win a number of prizes, including a Best Actor award.
The 72 hours of filmmaking kicks off on Friday 30th of June 2017 and runs until Monday 3rd July. Selected films will be screened at ACMI on the 6th of July.
Filmly is a fantastic opportunity for actors to meet emerging filmmakers. Films will be completed in 72 hours, and screened in less than a week! With such a quick turn around, you can receive a copy of your performance in three days. Each production budget may vary, it is therefore up to the individual filmmakers whether this is unpaid, expenses, or paid.
We would love to hear from actors interested in taking part, so please apply and one of the filmmakers will be in touch if they need actors!
NOTE: In your application please specify your availability between the 30th of June until the 3rd of July.
If you would like to apply for this role or want to find out more, please make contact below with a link to your Actorbase Profile or email casting@thedatabase.com.au

      Hi Claudine, Come to The Panama Dining Room, Fitzroy so you can meet some other actors and filmmakers. Form a team or join an existing team and go out over the weekend to make a 4-8min short film. Oh, how the possibilities are endless!

    Etienne and Arjen Goessens would be interested as young actors. They have a lot of training and experience in improvisation. Both of them are on your actors database
