Attention Actors!

The Virginia Film Festival is calling all actors in the tri-state area to participate in the 9th Annual Adrenaline Film Project. In a matter of three fast-paced, jam-packed days, you could be cast into a role, star in a short film, and see yourself on the big screen in front of a sold-out audience in a nationally recognized film festival. It’s a great chance to start building your reel while working with up-and-coming local filmmakers, and to be seen by high-profile industry leaders who serve as guest mentors. Who knows, by Saturday night, you might just find yourself at the podium accepting the prestigious Best Actor Award!

If you are interested in acting for Adrenaline, please attend the Actor’s Meet and Greet on Tuesday, October 30th at 7:00 p.m. on the Main Lounge (3rd floor) in Newcomb Hall at the University of Virginia. RSVP and send any questions to Actors should make themselves available for shooting from the afternoon of Thursday, November 1 until the morning of Saturday, November 3.
