Want some cash to make a film? Step up to the plate!

This email was transmitted this morning via MindHub from Kristi Johnson (Fresno County Film Commission):

Attn: Writers & Filmmakers -- Rare opportunity to pitch your ideas to an award winning producer actively seeking new scripts and filmmaking talent - at the 9th annual Sacramento Film & Music Festival.

Meet Larry Meistrich, producer of Sling Blade + many other award winning films, and founder/CEO of Nehst Studios - at the Sac Film & Music Festival on Saturday August 9th at 1:30pm for a special Nehst production screening of 'Running America', and an enlightning and informative discussion with Larry afterwards on the future of the film industry, the plans for Nehst Studios, and get some great tips on pitching to industry professionals - which helps filmmakers prepare for the one on one pitch sessions the following day!

Then on Sunday August 10th, Meistrich will also hold one-on-one pitch sessions on for filmmakers and writers who wish to present their best script / story idea for financing and/or production consideration. Nehst has secured a $250 million film fund and is actively seeking new scripts and film talent to fill a slate of upcoming productions! Are you ready for your big break??

Don't think I quite have the sack to do a pitch quite yet, but for some here in town who's not as big a pussy as myself, here's a perfect opportunity! If anyone out there attempts this, let us know!

It's in fact very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I just use web for that purpose, and get the latest news.
