Hollywood Casting and Film Partners with NewFilmmakers Los Angeles

Professional casting studio Hollywood Casting and Film announced a partnership with nonprofit NewFilmmakers Los Angeles, Friday, in an effort to support NFMLA’s mission to promote up-and-coming filmmakers with low-cost resources.

Per the deal, NFMLA filmmakers will be eligible for free resources through HCandF including studios, lighting and the casting studio’s database of actors. The filmmakers will be able to host free casting sessions in the HCandF studio spaces as well as access the studio’s website to post project descriptions and character descriptions and send, store and access audition videos without the need to provide feedback to individual actors. Additionally, NFMLA actors will be provided with a three-month free trial of the HCandF services.

“NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is committed to showcasing the innovative works of aspiring filmmakers,” said Sunny Vachher, Hollywood Casting and Film co-founder. “We feel privileged to be a new resource for NFMLA filmmakers and actors, and look forward to supporting its members by sharing projects with the Hollywood Casting and Film community.”

Added NFMLA executive director Larry Laboe, “The purpose and mission of NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is to provide resources and tools to  emerging filmmakers. We’re proud to expand our network by partnering with Hollywood Casting and Film. The fact that Hollywood Casting and Film is able to offer filmmakers a facility for casting and filming in the heart of Hollywood at little to no cost is incredible.”

In addition to the partnership, HCandF will serve as official sponsor to monthly NFMLA film festivals.
