international casting directors network (icdn)

actors industry network

On February 13, 2005, during the Berlin International Film Festival, fifteen casting directors from seven countries have founded the International Casting Directors Network (ICDN). Today, the network has 78 members from 24 different countries. It is the first network of its kind and is aimed exclusively at casting directors who cast feature films. Up until then, casting directors were only organised in national associations.

ICDN objectives

The ICDN offers casting directors the chance to exchange ideas on an international level about their different ways of working, to take advantage of synergies with international co-productions and to attract greater attention to the work of casting a film, and, to publicize, inform about and enhance the profession of the casting director in every country

The goals of the ICDN include:

  • Establishing a recognized standard of professionalism in the industry
  • Enhancing the stature of the profession of casting director
  • Taking on responsibility to help shape film policy and processes
  • Honouring achievements of members
  • Providing members with professional support and resources
