Spotlight’s collaboration with Filmmakers will provide new opportunities for members of both platforms across Europe.

Filmmakers is the go-to platform for casting professionals in the EU seeking talented performers for a variety of projects. It facilitates connections that propel careers in European cinema and TV. For more information please visit www.filmmakers.eu.

The beta launch of the integration introduces a 4-month trial period where Spotlight Performer and Graduate members can now be featured on the Filmmakers platform. Filmmakers Premium + members can also choose to share their Filmmakers profile on the Spotlight platform.

Spotlight and Filmmakers performers will be able to opt in to the trial through their accounts on their existing platform. The trial period lasts for 4 months from the date you choose to opt in to the trial.

Choosing to opt in for the trial will immediately create a copy of a profile on the partner site. This is then visible for Casting Professionals when searching either directory. 

Please note this trial does not give access to a login on the partner site, the ability to view jobs posted on Spotlight/Filmmakers or the membership benefits of each platform.

A banner will appear on your ‘My Account’ page, prompting you to sign up for the trial, should you wish to do so. Currently if you have dismissed or chosen not to participate in this trial, the banner will no longer appear to you when signing in.

The trial is for 4 months after which we will get in touch with performers to let them know how to proceed with keeping their profile on Filmmakers.

If you do choose to opt in for the trial, a copy of your Spotlight profile and its details will be created on the Filmmakers site. This will then appear in search results on the Filmmakers platform and will include a link to your full Spotlight profile. This will be visible to any user searching the Filmmakers’ database.

Please note this trial does not give access to a login on the Filmmakers site, or the ability to view jobs posted on Filmmakers currently.

While your profile will be on the Filmmakers website, it is just for searching purposes and doesn’t give you access to their breakdowns currently. We are, however, working closely with Filmmakers on new initiatives such as breakdowns and integrative access for agents and casting directors.

Any changes to your Spotlight profile during the trial will be reflected on your Filmmakers profile automatically. As mentioned you will not have access to a Filmmakers login to change your profile currently.

If you are represented by an agent on Spotlight, their details will also show on your Filmmakers profile. If you are Self Represented questions@spotlight.com will appear on your Filmmakers profile. Any Casting enquiries will then be checked and passed through to you as normal via your Spotlight registered email address.

Please see here for full Terms and Conditions.

If we can support with any further queries please do let us know at questions@spotlight.com.

The beta launch of Spotlight’s integration with Filmmakers introduces a 4-month trial period where Filmmakers Premium + members can now be featured on the Spotlight platform. Spotlight has been at the vanguard of casting since 1927, connecting performers and their agents with casting opportunities in film, television, theatre, and commercials in the UK and Ireland.

You will be asked if you wish to join the trial when signing in to your Filmmakers account online.

If you do choose to opt in for the trial, a copy of your Filmmakers profile and its details will be created on the Spotlight site. This will then appear in search results on the Spotlight platform and will include a link to your full Filmmakers profile. This will be visible only to registered users of the Spotlight database.

At the moment the collaboration is for your Filmmakers profile to be visible and searchable on Spotlight. It does not include any of the other benefits we offer, such as access to the jobs feed, events and exclusive discount. If you wish to make use of these benefits you would need to join as a full Spotlight member. For more information about our membership benefits, please visit our website.
