Audition Meet & Mingle with the Minnesota Film and Television Board
Audition Meet & Mingle is a unique two-way showcase event for independent film directors and producers who want to audition, meet, and mingle with union actors who could end up starring in your next
short or feature length project.  
If you’ve always wanted to work with union actors but had no access, or felt union actors may be out of your realm or budget, this is your chance to see 30 SAG/AFTRA actors who want to see you too!
Auditions will take place at Minneapolis Television Network on Monday June 3, 2013, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Actors will be scheduled every seven minutes during a two-hour block from noon to
2 p.m. followed by another two-hour block from 3:00 p.m. 5:00 p.m..
Contact information for all parties involved will be available. There will also be a presentation on the process of working with SAG/AFTRA
contracts for short and low budget projects. Directors need to bring 35 bios/resumes; in exchange, you will receive each actor’s resume with their relevant contact information and a audition link from the day.
Organized by Steele Casting and sponsored by Minnesota Film and Television, this event is designed for making connections, strengthening ties, and seeing actors in a professional audition
setting -- then mingle over drinks at the Astor Cafe. Great actors want to meet great directors. We need each other.
Attending the audition segment is free and has 50 spots available. RSVPs will be handled on a first come, first served basis.
Minneapolis Television Network is located at:
125 SE Main St. # 244 (in St. Anthony Main)
Minneapolis, MN 55414-2143 
Please RSVP to Lynn Steele at
