Continuing its quest to support Kosovar actors by facilitating their access to the international market and their engagement in film projects outside of Kosovo, PriFest has established a partnership with Spotlight, one of the most renowned casting services in Europe.
“I am very happy to have established this partnership because PriFest is slowly getting to where we envisioned it would when we started this undertaking 12 years ago, that is to be a connecting bridge which serves the performing arts industry so that it expands outside Kosovo’s borders. As a result of this partnership, this year the festival will select 5 actors from Kosovo to provide them with free one-year memberships in Spotlight, enabling them to promote themselves and engage in different projects outside of Kosovo,’ said PriFest director Vjosa Berisha.
Who is Spotlight?
Spotlight connects performers with roles in theatre, television and film productions. Casting professionals choose Spotlight to cast their projects because performers on Spotlight are recognised as the industry’s best. With studios in London’s famous West End and a team of people across Europe, Spotlight is at the heart of the performing arts industry. Alongside our partners in Europe, America and Australia we truly believe in global casting and finding the right performer for the job, wherever they are (find out more about Spotlight here https://www.spotlight.com/)
