A great opportunity for any BIPOC individuals
who are interested in a career in casting!

We are pleased to announce a new initiative to increase diversity in the Canadian casting community. As home to some of Canada’s most renowned casting professionals, the CDC is opening its doors to up-and-coming creatives by offering two, 6-week paid internship opportunities, during the Spring/Summer of 2021.

Following a virtual application and interview process, each successful candidate will be placed with a working casting director for 6 weeks. One candidate will be placed with a casting director who specializes in scripted long form programming; the other will gain experience with a casting director who specializes in casting commercials.

By inviting candidates from across Canada to take part in this experience, the CDC hopes to move towards becoming a more fully-diverse group that represents Black, Indigenous, Racialized, LGBTQ2S+, and/or people living with disabilities.

For those interested in learning more and to submit an application, please visit https://www.castingsociety.ca/diversity

Submissions will be accepted until April 30th, 2021. Shortlisted individuals will be contacted for a Zoom interview in early May.

The CDC wishes to express thanks to the following companies whose generous support helped make this initiative possible:

OPC production
Spy Films
Undivided Creative
Untitled Films
RP Communications
