Opportunity for queer script readers and actors

Proud Voices on Screen is seeking script readers and actors with lived queer experience as part of their support for queer voices:

Actors will read the script, take part in an in-person table read and then a feedback discussion with filmmakers. The total commitment is between 3 - 5 hours (depending on length of the project; short, TV pilot or feature). This is a paid opportunity. (Tāmaki-based).

Script readers for panels (online): Panelists will read feature or TV pilot scripts and attend a two-hour feedback discussion (online meeting). Discussion will centre around questions posed by the filmmakers, focusing on authenticity and inclusivity when it comes to queer themes, storylines and/or characters’ gender or sexuality. Readers do not need to be experienced writers or filmmakers - they are looking for people bringing the lens of their lived experience. This is a paid opportunity.

Applications are due by: 5pm, Thurs 30 Nov 2023
