Judged on the Last Tuesday of Every Month

Any 2-3 minute monologue 
Best performance wins $100 and is cast in a professional  short film
No entrance fee just register, attend and perform


We are a family of actors, filmmakers and writers all committed to making great movies and owning the profits from those movies.  All costs are paid by the Actor Film Ensemble, Inc,,  a Nevada nonprofit corporation.  


We write our films for our actors and make sure that the roles work for them.  Actors have input in the creation of the roles and the selection of the scripts before a single contract is signed.


We only use professional equipment and we make sure that every film is professionally edited, scored, and has a full marketing plan approved by the membership.  We send our films to festival, submit for IMDB listings,


You must have the time, desire, and commitment to make great movies..  You must be willing to wait for the profits to be generated behind a pay gate, subscription service, on demand, or theatrical contract.


We all love the acting and filmmaking industry and are committed to making or finding the time to shoot our films.  We are not hobbyists just looking to play around and we understand that  hard work is required not just waiting to get discovered.

Why our programs are free


The simple fact is that we are funded by AFE a Nevada nonprofit corporation. There goal is to increase the professional image of acting and filmmaking here in Las Vegas. We make movies that a large majority of audience members will love. We don’t make movies filled with ideology or political persuasion events. We are open to any actor or filmmaker regardless of their experience level as long as they share our desire to make great movies that further our careers and skill sets.  In exchange for this our cast and crew split 70% of all gross profits in perpetuity based on time-on-set for any film they are in or work on.

We also don’t waste our grants on things that look good but accomplish very little. Our classes are held at our producer’s home. There is a well equipped dedicated room for this and the classes offer more than any program we are aware of in Las Vegas. Our coach who has owned many theatres around the world and been involved in producing many films over his 33 years in the industry volunteers his time. He is not shy in telling us that the best thing actors in our program have going for them is that the coach does not need or want your money. Which means he does not have to join the ranks of those who have to be careful what they say to the actor in order to get the actor’s check. He tells it like it is and is only interested in the actors skill sets improving.

If you are committed, understand that being on time, keeping all your commitments  to improve, and you love the craft, then we will work very hard to help you succeed in the industry.

Free means paying with your heart, your time, and your commitment.
