Cast Your New School Film for Free with Backstage!

Cast Your New School Film for Free with Backstage!

For over 50 years, Backstage has been a go-to job listing resource for entertainment and performing arts professionals. Now, to celebrate the launch of our completely revamped online casting platform, Backstage is offering New School filmmakers a chance to cast their next project for free and reach an active talent database of over 50,000 actors!

Simply visit and click “Post a Job.” You’ll be prompted to create a free account, which can be used for future casting calls and managing talent submissions–think of it as your very own virtual casting office! Once your account is created, you can start posting notices for individual projects. No payment is required for online only notices* so long as the promo code NewSchoolStudent4 is entered at check-out. Best of all, there’s no limit to the number of times you can use the code per semester (so long as you’re casting a valid class project). Additionally, once you’ve placed your first notice, you will be able to search the Backstage Talent Database and reach out to actors directly.

So start drafting those log lines and character breakdowns and head over to with the code NewSchoolStudent4 to start bringing your characters to life!
