An invitation to a film festival where an actor’s film is featured is exciting, but also a way to network and fit in a few interviews. It’s not an item for an actor’s resume, though. Neither are awards. Since there are no legitimate awards just for child actors, if an actor does get a big nod, like an Oscar or Golden Globe nomination or win, it would be mentioned in the media.
Along with film festivals, walking the red carpet at a big event or opening gives your child industry experience outside the audition room or set. Not everything needs to land on a resume to be important to your child’s career. When your child gets such an opportunity, relax and make it fun.
