Film & Performing Arts Opportunities

The last few years, with successes such as Tatiana Maslany’s run in Orphan Black, Paul Nolan on Broadway in Jesus Christ Superstar and at Stratford in The Grapes of Wrath and more, Wolf Cop winning the CineCoup competition, and Jeffery Straker winning the Vina del Mar song competition in Chile, there’s been plenty of opportunities for performing artists and filmmakers from this area to strut their stuff on the national and international stage.

In the next 10 days two organizations with national reach will be in town to troll for talent for their respective programs.

First up is the Vancouver Film School. On Thursday, Feb. 26 it will be holding an information session for people interested in studying filmmaking, along with animation, games and graphic design. The event will be held at the Double Tree by Hilton on the corner of Broad & Victoria Ave. with a 6 p.m. start time. You can access registration information for the free event, along with learning more about the VFS, here.

On Sunday, March 1, another B.C.-based organization, the Canadian College of Performing Arts, will be in Regina as part of its cross-Canada auditions for aspiring singers, dancers and actors. The auditions will be held at the Sask. Express building (2272 Pasqua St.) starting at 11 a.m. The CCPA is located in the beautiful city of Victoria, and you can find out more about its programs, and register for the audition, here. Alternately, you can call 250-595-9970.

One thought on “Film & Performing Arts Opportunities”

  1. It should be noted that people don’t have to go to Vancouver to study film. The Department of Film at the University of Regina has graduates working as independent filmmakers and producers whose films screen around the world; as award-winning cinematographers, editors, directors and writers; as contributors to cultural communities across Canada and internationally (one of our grads is a programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, others are running artist-run centres)
