We are in southwestern Ontario, Canada.
We are a volunteer support group leading several Production Teams from various Production Houses.
We do not take scripts on spec. All of our scripts are by gifted writers through each Production House.
Are we affiliated with any group that was in London, England that operated under a similar name? NO !
Do you make profit on what you do? NO. We operate with donated funds that go back into the program.
Do you take donations of equipment & props? Yes. We are always looking for good used audio, recording & imaging equipment.
Do you take gifted cash donations, GoFundMe and PayPal? Yes. We only operate on donated funds.
How do you receipt for contributions? There is a safe "double entry" system for receipting. Any funds or items are receipted by Don Hickey our Community Engagement Manager [CEM] at time of acceptance. The second receipt is issued by the Production House indicating receiving the contribution from the CEM. This second receipt will also indicate the "production title or project" that the contributions supports. A letterhead from the film Production House will indicate acknowledgement and thanks.
Where does the money go that's earmarked by the donor? The funds received go fully to the appointed Production House and will be receipted as mentioned above.
Who is Don Hickey (our Community Engagement Manager [CEM])? Please go to Don's Biography.
What's your policy on under-aged actors or crew ? The production companies follow strict guidelines for any under-aged youth working with us. Youth under the age of 18 must have a guardian present during contacting us and also any future meetings, auditions and filming. We will need to verify with an adult guardian before we engage beyond first contact and/or resume submitting. We will allow a "head shot" and a Resume to be e-Mailed to us. We will confirm authenticity of content of the resume. This is a policy strictly enforced, enacted by us!
Do you hold auditions? Yes. Each Production House holds "audition calls" for each film. Which is advertised on the iFilmGroup website under "Casting Calls".
Do you have an application process for volunteers applying? Yes. Please find on the "Casting Calls" pages or follow link- Application for Consideration
