CFS Open Auditions

The Colorado Film School periodically holds open auditions. Actors willing to work on student projects are welcome to attend. Come by and show us what you’ve got!

These auditions are used to create a pool of talent that students may use to help cast their projects. Neither party should feel obligated to work with the other.

Open Auditions are not for any specific student project. These are 1-2 minute monologues recorded in our studio and posted to FSGreenlight.com for student access only.

However, in addition to Open Auditions, individual student projects also hold casting calls to fill specific roles for their films on these dates. These “satellite” auditions are hosted in various classrooms around the school. If you are interested in participating, please bring ample headshots and resumes (~10 copies) to leave with the project’s casting directors.

Actors of all ages and levels are welcome. Student directors are looking for a wide variety of roles for upcoming projects and some roles may receive compensation.

To continue to be included in our database, please attend Open Auditions for each semester you wish to be considered.

SAG-AFTRA actors are encouraged to attend.

Fall 2020 Open Auditions are CANCELLED and productions delayed until 2021.

Headshot Database

The Colorado Film School has had the great fortune of auditioning local actors willing to work on student projects. Our database contains headshots, contact information, and footage from previous CFS Open Auditions.

New headshots and auditions footage will be available to view in 2 weeks following each CFS Open Audition.

Actors may sign up for audition times within two weeks prior to each Open Audition: mid-January-early-February for our Spring Open Auditions and mid-August-early-September for our Fall Open Auditions. Follow Galina’s Casting for announcements as times are posted and available for each sign-up period.

When available, please sign up for audition times using the button above. If you need an account with CFS, please attend our next Open Audition and an account will be created for you after your audition.

All current students should already have an account setup with their S# as their username.

All current actors who auditioned in Fall 2013 or later should already have an account setup with their username as their first and last name, i.e. JaneDoe. Actors may now login using their email address instead of assigned username.
