Actors of all types and ages will be needed.  Film crews will be built including directors, producers, camera operators, audio equipment operators, plus helpers of all types including those who will work with lighting, finding locations, wardrobe, make-up, props and general production assistants.

Volunteers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend the Cast and Crew Call since the “A Place Called Sacramento” historically has been the entry point for many who have never worked on a movie before.  “A Place Called Sacramento” is our region’s first and original all-local film festival celebrating film makers in our area.
