                             INSIDE TRACK @ SPAAmart
        The Australian Film Commission, in partnership with Film Victoria, NSW Film and Television
        Office, Pacific Film and Television Commission, South Australian Film Corporation, screenACTion,
        and ScreenWest, is pleased to announce the return of Inside Track for 2005. Inside Track
        introduces feature film producers to the domestic and international marketplace through
        SPAAmart.

        What is Inside Track?
        Inside Track is a sidebar event that runs alongside SPAAmart, the feature finance market
        attached to the SPAA Conference (13-16 August 2005) at the Gold Coast’s Sheraton Mirage
        Hotel.

        Inside Track aims to give a select group of producers a taste of the marketplace by:

        ♦      increasing understanding of financing films in a global industry
        ♦      furthering knowledge of domestic distributors
        ♦      broadening international and national contacts.

        In addition, Inside Track participants will have priority in being selected for other AFC
        Marketing initiatives such as the Rotterdam Lab (held during Cinemart at the International
        Film Festival Rotterdam).

        Who is Inside Track for?
        Inside Track is geared towards:

        ♦      producers with a first or second feature in development
        ♦      producers with a strong list of credits (shorts, documentaries, indie features) that have
               competed at international film festivals.


        What’s good about Inside Track?
        Inside Track participants will have:

        ♦      privileged access to SPAAmart guests via a scheduled series of group meetings. Visiting
               international executives, domestic distributors, government bodies, financing and
               pitching experts will introduce how they work and what kind of projects and films they
               are looking for
        ♦      free registration and access to SPAA Conference and SPAAmart sessions
        ♦      opportunity to meet fellow producers at a similar stage of development from around
               the country
        ♦      access to the wider industry via social activities at both SPAAmart and the SPAA
               Conference
        ♦      a flight stipend to travel to the Gold Coast
        ♦      accommodation for three nights (room costs only).
