As Audiard in his film Dheepan many filmmakers choose to work with non-professional actors, thereby reviving an old tradition of the 7th art. Some directors even make it their registered trademark. Quest for realism, love at first sight or budget constraints, there are many reasons why choosing to work with neophytes. This workshop will teach you to get the best out of this experience, both for your film and team.

Workshop is given in French but questions may be asked in English.

You are encouraged to write a short note describing your project / your experience / your expectations so that the instructor can guide you best. → Send to services@mainfilm.qc.ca
