in cooperation with the Berlinale Coproduction Market

What's the best pathway to putting together your dream cast? How is the collaborative relationship between director, producer and casting director optimized? Do you really need a "bankable" actor to get your project off the ground? If so, how do casting directors go about attaching a name? When do you have to sign a SAG-AFTRA contract? A panel with the international casting directors Timka Grin, Luci Lenox and Nicci Topping and Gary Broughton (Spotlight ) will answer all these questions – and many more – in this session geared towards giving producers and directors real-world solutions to any and all casting conundrums. The moderation will be taken over by Imran Khan, Head of Development, Big Window Production, Berlin.
