Be Part of Queer Film History

Read on to see how you can be an extra in MILK!

from the website:

"On Monday night, February 4th and Friday night, February 8th, the feature film MILK (directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Sean Penn as Harvey Milk) will be re-creating three 1970's marches through the Castro.

We are looking for volunteers to appear in the these marches in the film. THERE ARE NO AUDITIONS. IF YOU SIGN-UP ON THIS SITE AND SHOW UP, YOU WILL BE USED. All ages, races and genders are welcome. But, you MUST be 18 or over to participate.

Filming will take place from 7pm - midnight on Monday night at Castro & Market and from 9pm - 3am on Friday night at Market & Franklin. Come either or both nights.

As a thank you for participating, we will host a screening for the marchers of the documentary THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK on Monday, February 4th at the Castro Theater at 4:30pm, with introductions by the filmmaker, Rob Epstein, Cleve Jones, Gus Van Sant, and members of the cast. The filming will begin immediately after the screening."

ADDENDUM from January 23rd:
Due to the overwhelming response, the screening and the march on Februrary 4th are now unfortunately full.
We still have some space available for Friday night Feb 8th, and we have added two nights that we could also use you, Wednesday, February the 6th & Tuesday, February the 12th. Both of events will start around 7pm on Castro street.
