Film Festival Asks for Local Music

What: Shoot Out Film Festival

FREE exposure is something every up-and-coming band cherishes.

So, fitting with the Hunter flavour of Newcastle's Shoot Out Film Festival, organisers are calling for local musicians to submit their recorded material and bio to make up the festival's music library.

Until Friday, June 29, Me-Shell Croker will collect all styles of music from local musos. 'It can be jazz, soul, rock, blues, country, techno, instrumental, ska, punk, heavy rock, classical, anything,' she said.

Croker said about 40 CDs were submitted to the library last year and all of them were selected for at least one film.

'We are aiming to make the CD library more visual this year by having all CDs in display bins, posters of local bands on the walls and a minimum of two listening bays which will include a computer and headphones,' she said.

Shoot Out entrants will pay $1 for each song they use on their film.

For more information call Me-Shell Croker on 4927-6822 or (0414) 478-279.
