"So You Think You Can Direct/Act" is a competition exclusively targeted to recognize the talent of directors, actors and actresses, from around the world.
Directors just submit your finished film, documentary or short.
Actors simply submit their reels or featured movie clips to the competition for consideration of their acting skills in many genres from drama to comedy. Or, for the multi-faceted actor, combination genre clips may also be submitted..

What makes So You Think You Can Direct/Act unique from other director and actor-oriented competitions? In order to insure that each submission is studied and rated on an individual basis, SYTYCA has instituted a system to insure that entries do not compete against each other, but instead are recognized for their own individual merits. For all intents and purposes, they compete against themselves: each entry is judged on individual merits and scored on an inherent value system. We want to insure that the judges focus is on you when it is your turn to be evaluated, not on all the other directors or actors that are in cue: this insures that they will not have comparisons going on in their minds when they should be focusing entirely on YOU.

Directors and actors submissions will be judged on FilmFreeway.
