Panel of casting directors "Casting across borders"

  • Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania Gedimino pr. 51, Vilnius Vilnius, Vilniaus apskr., 01124 Lithuania (map)

In the recent years, the number of European leads starring in Hollywood has been constantly growing. With casting crossing states’ borders or even becoming transcontinental, casting directors from the US are hunting talented Britons, Irish and actors of other nationalities skillful in English, while casting professionals from Europe are increasingly applying effective casting methods used by their American colleagues. The representatives of the Emmy-Awarded Casting Society of America, Nancy Bishop and Kim Swanson, who work in both, America and Europe, will share their casting-related insights and experiences that usually remain behind the closed doors. Amateur and professional actors will have an opportunity to learn all about the world-class casting, and directors, producers and all the present and future professionals of the industry will hear how to choose actors more effectively and take advantages of international opportunities. Lithuanian casting directors – Kristina Kolytė (agency Editos kastingas), Dalia Survilaitė, Donatas Šimukauskas (Aktorių agentūra) – will be sharing their experiences in Lithuania.
