The final pitch

Six local film makers will present their television concepts in front of a live audience at Screenworks' Life's a Pitch as they try to win the grand prize and capture the attention of the screen industry's big wigs. It all happens at the Byron Community Centre this Saturday, October 24, from 7pm. And it's open to the puiblic.

Executives from SBS, ABC, Screen Australia and Screen NSW are coming to Byron to judge Screenworks Life's a Pitch competition. The judges will select the winner and award them with a ticket to the Screen Producers Association of Australia's conference (valued at $1650) and $1000 travel money.

The judges are also in a position to provide development and production funding to any of the projects that capture their interest.

With comedian Robert Grayson as MC and an Open Mic section that calls for audience participation, there's sure to be a lot of laughs.

Tickets to the event are available from the Mullumbimby Bookshop, Mary Ryan's Bookshop in Byron, Barebones Art Space in Bangalow and Screenworks (6687 1599).
