And here's the bit about the Australian International Movie Convention!

The organisers of the Australian Feature Film Summit have offered New Zealand two places in a pitch competition to be held on 12 May, the final day of the Australian International Movie Convention. 

To choose the producers who will take up the two places, Share The Knowledge has organised its own pitch competition. It will only be open to participants in PICTURE. An audience of NZ’s leading exhibitors, both majors and indies, will choose the two winning pitches. 

The successful producers will travel to Sydney for the AIMC competition with travel and accommodation expenses provided by the Film Commission.
