A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end… but not necessarily in that order.

It’s not letting me login for the first time, why?

Often times this is because you have not verified your email address. You should have received a verification email upon signing up. All you have to do is click the link inside and this will verify your email and your account will be activated, allowing you to log in. In some cases this email is sent to your junk folder. If you didn’t received this email, contact us and we will resend the verification for you!

If you try logging into FilmLocal without activating your account first this will happen. Contact us and we will send you another verification link.

How do I show up in the Cast/Crew directories?

Can I send people private messages?

You can! There is an option to on a users profile page and on their profile card if you’re looking through a directory.

How much will this cost me?

The site itself is absolutely free! No hidden fees or anything of the like here.

Can I get banned from the site?

You can, but if you’re a good person and don’t spam, you’ll be safe!

I’m receiving emails from FilmLocal, why?

We send out emails for two reasons; one to inform our members about general news and updates with FilmLocal and the other to let you know about work in your area. If you don’t want to receive these emails, there is an unsubscribe link at the end of every email. There are two separate lists so if, for example, you unsubscribe from the work email, you will still receive the updates to FilmLocal email and vice versa.
