“American-Idol style” try-outs for Vancouver Film School to be held Nov. 25 in Iqaluit
Aspiring actors in Iqaluit will get a chance later this week to audition in front of bigwigs from the Vancouver Film School.
Among the film school’s visiting panel of judges will be Grace Dove, a Shuswap actress from Prince George, British Columbia. Shortly after graduating from Vancouver Film School, Dove went on to play a lead role opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the 2015 film The Revenant.
The school’s founder, James Griffin, will also be part of the panel, along with executive producer Christopher Ian Bennett.
The national talent-scouting tour coincides with the film school’s 30th anniversary, said Bennett. “We’re the oldest and most established one in Canada. And we wanted to celebrate that and ask what the next 30 years are going to look like.”
