Eat, Drink, & B-Indie presented by Stella Artois: Casting Call

  • Manuel's Tavern 602 Highland Avenue Northeast Atlanta, GA, 30312 United States (map)

This September, the Atlanta Film Festival is hosting its first ever EDBI Casting Call.

ATLFF's monthly gathering at Manuel's Tavern has become a hotspot for local filmmakers and film enthusiasts to connect and discuss upcoming projects, but we want to take it a step further. On September 16, we are inviting local actors to come and pitch themselves in front of a crowd of their peers, local filmmakers looking to cast upcoming projects, successful casting directors and talent agents!

If you are a casting director, talent agent or a filmmaker who is looking to cast roles in an upcoming project, we want you there! This will be a great opportunity for you to meet local talent and find the stars of your next film. For more information, email Cameron at

If you are an Atlanta-area actor looking for your next starring role, this is a golden opportunity for you! Fill out the form below. The first 30 (thirty) approved applicants will each be provided 1 (one) minute to pitch themselves in front of an audience filled with industry professionals and filmmakers—people they must convince of their talent. We are not looking for people who have not acted before and are looking to begin now. We are seeking experienced, local actors who are looking for new projects. After each actor and actress has had their chance to pitch to our VIPs, the networking will commence! Headshots and promotional material may not be distributed, except upon the request of interested parties.

Application now closed!

Once the first thirty spots are filled, those people will be notified. However, all hope is not lost if you don't make the cut! An overflow list will be available and if one of the original thirty fails to check-in on time or show up all together, we will proceed to call names from the overflow list.

More information will be communicated with all applicants via email.

Join us on the third Tuesday of every month at Manuel's Tavern for Eat, Drink, & B-Indie presented by Stella Artois! The first 40 (age appropriate) attendees will receive a ticket good for a free Stella Artois.
