The Hollywood Complex

USA/English (90 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Every spring, thousands of aspiring child actors flock to Tinseltown for pilot season, the traditional casting period for new network and cable television shows. Many of them set up camp at ‘The Oakwood’, a temporary housing complex that caters to the showbiz flock. While their little Angelinas and mini Brads audition for armies of ruthless agents and TV executives, the parents must manage sky-high expectations and thin skins, including their own.

Dan Sturman and Dylan Nelson (Soundtrack for a Revolution, Nanking) follow a newly-arrived crop of hopefuls over the course of one season, as everyone navigates unexpected professional and personal obstacles in pursuit of ‘the dream’. Never taking the easy way out by showing us ‘monstrous stage parents’ so prevalent on reality television, The Hollywood Complex is a thoughtful, respectful, and entertaining look at the ups and downs of the fickle world of fame.
