Hiring Actors for Your Indie Film


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Working with SAG-AFTRA can seem like an intimidating prospect for any first-time filmmaker, so SAGindie educates producers about the ins and outs of hiring actors for low-budget films. SAG-AFTRA recently introduced a new Short Project Agreement, covering shorts for theatrical and new media platforms. With the introduction of this new contract, SAGindie can explain the changes and what it means for content creators. In addition to demystifying the SAG-AFTRA signatory process overall, this workshop can shed light on the new agreement and explain what it takes to cast pro talent.
