All Indigenous actors, preferably local Chilcotin people, are needed for Portraits From A Fire’s cast
Tsilhqot’in filmmaker Trevor Mack returns to Williams Lake on May 29 to hold an open casting call for Indigenous actors for his upcoming feature-length film Portraits From A Fire.
Auditions will be held from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Sandman Inn and are open to Indigenous male and female actors of all experience levels. Mack hopes to primarily cast people from the Cariboo-Chilcotin for this movie, though he will be holding a follow-up casting call in Vancouver on June 4 on the second floor 531 Carral Street from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
”Portraits From A Fire is a passion project of mine that I’m very intimately connected to. It’s a story that’s taken shape over the past two years but is a culmination, I think, of my life growing up on the Anaham Reserve as well as my relationships with my family,” Mack said.
