Casting for Short Film

Casting for a Short Film: ‘On Both Sides’ is a short film about the identity crisis which is usually suffered in late teens and now returns at the end of our 20’s. The film centres on a fear of missing out, uncertainty and instability.

Actors must be available for location shooting on 28th and 29th December and on 3rd January. These are unpaid roles but all necessary travel, food, beverages and refreshments will be provided as well as show-reel material.

Casting for two females:

Beverly is 29, she seems to have to all, good job, nice friends, a steady boyfriend on the cusp of proposing to her. Everything has fallen into place as per the list of life benchmarks but she is internally at a crossroads. She is torn between a mundane daily life with her boyfriend or an exciting single life with her new and intriguing friend Anna. She is quietly confident but has become anxious of late as she feels an overwhelming sense of change looming.
Anna is a 29 year old who lives life to the beat of her own drum but her external free spirited and liberal attitude is somewhat unmasked to display a slight desire to control others. She sometimes medals and deliberately persuades others to follow her way of thinking for the sake of personal satisfaction. She follows her own whims while frequently chopping and changing between her interests and investments.
Interested parties should email Janet at by 13th December with a recent headshot and acting CV.

Audi Film Festival Volunteers needed!

Applications to be a Festival Volunteer at Audi Dublin International Film Festival are now open!
The Audi Dublin International Film Festival is bringing the world’s best films to Dublin between 16th-26th February 2017, and to make sure it’s programme of over 130 films, special events and guest appearances runs picture perfect, the Festival needs a team of smart, enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to pull together and make the Festival a success.

Help will be needed in areas such as venues, hospitality, office administration, production, ticketing, promotions, marketing and communications so whether you are welcoming Festival-goers to a venue and making sure that they’re getting the most out of the festival or helping behind the scenes at ADIFF HQ it’s a great way to get first-hand insight into the inner workings of an international entertainment event.

The Festival takes its volunteers seriously and is proud of the diverse and committed group of people from Dublin and much further afield who generously give their time and who often return year after year. It’s also a chance for volunteers to build up experience, explore the city in a new way and to make new connections – both whilst on the job and of course relaxing after a film at the Festival Club.
Depending on individual availability, volunteers can either apply to be full-time (a minimum of one shift per day during the Festival) or part-time. Each volunteer needs to be able to commit to a minimum of 5 volunteering shifts.

Volunteer applications are now open! Go to for more information and to download an application and make sure to apply before 5pm on January 13th, 2017. You must be over 18 to apply. Questions, comments or queries can be sent to John McHale, Volunteer Coordinator
