About Us

What is the ADCQ?

The Association des Directeurs de Casting du Québec is a professional association established to publicize and recognize the work of casting directors.

The correct term for our occupation is casting director, not casting agent. An agent is person or organization that acts on behalf of another (talent agent, booking agent, manager, etc.). A casting director is hired and paid by a producer to cast actors in a project, such as a feature film, television series or commercial.  ADCQ members have signed a code of ethics drafted by the UDA (Union des Artistes) and must abide by it.

The ADCQ also seeks to develop meaningful connections with the various players on the Quebec media arts scene: ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists), AQAA (Association Québécoise des Agents Artistiques), ACCT (Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television),  AQPM (Association québécoise de la production médiatique), CDC (Casting Directors Society of Canada), etc.

All ADCQ members are professional casting directors with at least two years’ experience in the media arts in Quebec. For further information, please contact us.

Association des Directeurs de Casting du Québec

Our Members

What do casting directors do?

A client, usually a producer or advertising agency, contacts a casting director for help finding the right actor for a role in a commercial, TV show, movie, webseries, corporate film or other type of production. Casting directors draw on their knowledge of the available pool of talent to find leads, supporting actors or extras, as required. Once familiar with a project and all its requirements, they can steer their client towards the actors who fit the bill. Casting directors may make suggestions or organize casting calls and are in charge of auditions. Once actors have been selected for various roles, casting directors confirm that they have accepted them.
