Big Screen Symposium

Having more local actors with an international profile is crucial to attracting offshore finance for local productions.  How do actors become stars, what’s the alchemy? Are we doing enough to facilitate this?

Join the panel as they throw some light on what the outside world wants from our performers, how they can prepare themselves to survive and enjoy the experience, and what the local industry can do to help propel our actors onto the international stage.

Panelists: casting director Tina Cleary, actor Robyn Malcolm, actors’ agent Imogen Johnson, actors’ agent Graham Dunster.

Moderator: Philippa Campbell.

Session Time: Saturday 10 August, 2:10pm, 90mins. View full programme.

Presented in association with Actors’ Equity NZ.
