Act Up! is a one of a kind event where the best screenwriters and the hottest actors and actresses come together for live reads and networking with influential producers, directors and film investors to foster growth, opportunity and hopefully… better scripts.

EVENT DETAILS

5pm – 7:30pm : Actor’s Den –  Writers meet with actors and actresses on site to prepare for the live read portion of the evening.  Writers can pull from the event actor pool to present the live read to the audience.

7:30pm – 8pm : Wine Bar – Grab a glass of wine and chop it up before the show begins

8pm – 10 pm : Live Reads  – The writer, using the actors from the Actor’s Den, presents 5 pages of their script to an audience of fellow writers, producers, directors and film investors.  After each reading, a Q&A discussion with the writer and audience takes place.
