Netflix Canada Casting Call

How to apply:

ATTENTION LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY IN CANADA!
Have you or your partner ever thought about re-doing your prom? If you have the chance to go back in time and relive your prom experience, but this time with the right person and the right friends, would you do it? If yes, then you have a chance to SURPRISE your partner!

Jigsaw Casting is seeking LGBTQ+ Couples Across Canada for a Netflix Canada Campaign! We’re looking for ONE PERSON in the pair to surprise the other. We want to give you or them an opportunity to relive you/their prom experience–the way they want it. Since this is a surprise for your partner, please DON’T TELL THEM OR POST THIS ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA!

Since a majority of millennial LGBTQ+ individuals were not able to attend their prom with the people they really wanted to, we want to showcase Canadians and their respective prom stories. For example: a couple who both went to prom with their best girlfriends and would have really wanted to go with each other. Now is your chance to re-do your partner’s prom experience and surprise them during the month of Pride in Canada!
