The Gold Coast International Film Festival invites YOU to audition for a chance to appear in this year’s festival trailer, win a free “All-Access VIP Pass” and walk the red carpet with Hollywood stars! It’s easy to enter online or in person. Just take a 15 second video of yourself acting out your favorite movie line and submit using Instagram or YouTube. Or, come to a Live Audition and we’ll shoot your 15 second video for you. Give us your best “You talkin’ to me?”, “Show me the money”, “There’s no place like home”, or “And this one time, at band camp…” Or any other memorable movie line you like. Be as funny or dramatic as you want. But give it everything you’ve got!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

SUBMIT USING INSTAGRAM:

1) Use INSTAGRAM to take a video of yourself acting out your favorite movie line.
