Acting Studio

Ready to Play!

Actors are the crucial vehicle that conveys the dialogue and emotion of the film. Tasked with embodying the characters developed in collaboration with the scriptwriter and director – actors must work together with many creative contributors to realize their roles. Actors from around the world are invited to explore their techniques, to work with dialogue delivery, to meet with international casting directors and more in the Acting Studio. Offering a variety of sessions that focus on particular aspects of acting, these rigorous workshops help Acting Studio participants to develop skills to collaborate and communicate with everyone involved in the filmmaking process.
