Actorfest is the premier industry event for performers, delivering the contacts, opportunities, and skills that a performer needs to build their career. 


Thank you to everyone who attended Actorfest in the past! Actorfest events have been helping actors with their careers for over 20 years.

Previous Actorfest events in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Detroit were immense successes. Thousands of actors -- young, older, aspiring, experienced -- come to Actorfest to learn more about the industry they love.

Thanks to all the attendees who spent their day at workshops, auditions and meet & drops, chatting with exhibitors in the packed Exhibit Hall, or telling their stories to Backstage's staff and hardworking team of volunteers.  

Of course, we want to thank all the casting directors, agents, managers, teachers and so forth who offered their time and expertise. We are grateful for your generosity and patience with hundreds of questions from actors eager to learn the pathway to success. You could not have been kinder to everyone. 

No dates for 2016 have been announced yet. Check this page for updates.

See you at the next Actorfest!
