The Film Program’s Casting Directory has been fully restored with a new profile style database. Check it out!

This directory is complied and updated after the annual General Casting Call to provide Film production students with access to local area actors who are interested in working on student film projects. Students who are enrolled in Film production courses can access this directory by creating/logging into their OperationalPortal.com account and use the navigation menu to locate the limited access page at Resources>Production>Casting Directory.

Looking forward, we will soon begin working on the metadata attached to each profile account to make the database easier to query searches for the types of actors you are looking for!

A secondary use is a highly anticipated opportunity for UCF to begin contributing to the cinema viewing culture of Orlando, and the greater Central Florida area, by curating rare and hard to access independent and international cinema.
